23 FAMILIES AND 82 INDIVIDUALS WILL SLEEP ON THE STREET TONIGHT IN MONTGOMERY COUNTY, PA
YOUR WAY HOME HAS identified 23 FAMILIES and 82 INDIVIDUALS that will sleep outside TONIGHT, while they wait for an emergency shelter bed to become available.
Your Way Home has embarked on this Gift of Warmth campaign to elevate the visibility of the most vulnerable populations currently experiencing homelessness in Montgomery County, PA, to ensure that no child under 5, no pregnant woman, and no medically fragile individual ever sleep outside. Through the Gift of Warmth, Your Way Home is engaging public, private, and faith based partners to ensure our program continues to have funding to support this goal and keep these populations off the street during the harsh winter weather.
THE GIFT OF WARMTH WILL DO THE FOLLOWING:
1. RAISE FUNDS TO OFFER TEMPORARY HOUSING TO OUR MOST VULNERABLE POPULATIONS AS THEY WAIT TO ENTER EMERGENCY SHELTER
2. CONNECT FAITH BASED PARTNERS TO TARGETED VOLUNTEER AND GIVING OPPORTUNITIES
3. EDUCATE THE GENERAL POPULATION ABOUT THE REALITIES OF HOMELESSNESS
