Can you believe we are just 10 days away from the Journey Home Care-A-Thon?
Words can't describe how excited I am for this 12-hour virtual fundraiser, but I can tell you what excites me the most: The opportunity to step up for our unhoused neighbors at a time when housing is so essential.
We are on a mission to raising $300,000 by April 23rd, and hitting our goal is the difference between removing some of the financial barriers that often prevent households from obtaining or remaining in permanent housing ( i.e. one-time move-in costs, tools for job training, professional attire for job interviews) and falling short.
We still have a long way to go, but I have faith that together we can do it. Can I count on you to chip in by registering for the Journey Home Care-A-Thon?
The event will be packed with lots of activities, including panel discussions, interviews with community members, a virtual resource fair featuring CoC members, and a mini-documentary on youth homelessness (Young and Homeless: Voices from the Field).
For me, the pièce de résistance will be the screening of The King of Howard Street, a play adapted from our very own Anthony Williams' personal journals. This segment will be hosted by the play's Director, Rosiland Cauthen, and will include commentary by Anthony and some actors.
<<First Name>>, this fundraiser is not only about housing but also about dignity. Every dollars invested will go a long way, and I hope you will be able to join us.
Thank you for all that you do.
Chair, Baltimore City Continuum of Care's Board
