YOU STABILIZED FAMILIES

Thanks to you, we met our goal of $2,184,000

Interfaith Outreach gratefully appreciates the excitement and generosity of our community, especially all those who pitched tents and pitched in financially to help local families right here, right now.

2016 marked the 21st year of the Sleep Out – the longest-running campaign of its kind!

Your support will keep 2,184 families in their homes, kids moving forward in school, adults in sustainable work and seniors active and involved. Thank you!

So, how does $1,000 help a struggling family?

This amount:

  • Is one rent payment to prevent homelessness plus food on the table for a family for one month
  • Offers an opportunity for a brother and sister to participate in a leadership development club for a whole year
  • Provides a one-month scholarship to Caring for Kids (CfK), early childhood education, so a little learner is better prepared for kindergarten and their parents can return to work
  • Sends a job seeker to specialized technical training that could double his/her salary
  • Pays for six months of family support to help a struggling family find resources and make progress toward a plan for family stability
  • Funds a major car repair to keep a working parent moving forward

…and so much more

Thank you for creating hope for a struggling family

Your generosity ignited the power of this great community!
