Summer! The majority of us look forward to summer and the activities we really enjoy such as baseball games, concerts, vacations, camp, and other opportunities for fun with family and friends.
Unfortunately, many families throughout the Cleveland area don’t look at summer the same way.
Those who are living in crisis simply try to make it through another day. The recent record temperatures could make ite that even harder.
Why we need your help?
- Every weekday more than 300 students will be participating in our free summer day camp, including the homeless children staying at Laura's Home.
- Seven days a week, 52 weeks a year, we average 230 men, women and children who spend one or more nights with us, receiving safe shelter, meals and other basic necessities. We added 22 beds this spring to Laura's Home so we wouldn't have to turn as many away.
- It isn't just about providing a place to stay and food. Many are enrolled in our 6-month program as they move from crisis and vulnerability towards self-sufficiency.
With your partnership and generous support this summer, you can help people do much more than just survive.
It can be a time in their lives to flourish and succeed!
