Perpetuate the Hope

On Tuesday September 16, 2014, we called on 107 or our close partners to help us gather over 950 new and old friends at the Depot with the goal to raise $356,000.  I am humbled, inspired, and motivated by the response.  To be able to stand in front of this greater, broader Urban Homeworks family, knowing that so many more of those who have been on this journey would have loved to be present, has only reinforced and reignited passion for the conversations we’ve been having, the work we’ve been doing, to create dignified housing and use it as the powerful tool that it is for community development.  You are influencing change in our communities and for our families – our united effort is drawing attention to the voices that aren’t listened to often enough.  Our kids are living into a different tomorrow because of you.  Thank you for showing up for lunch on September 16th, every month with your gifts, on-site as volunteers, and in our neighborhoods as community leaders (whether you’re a homeowner, church leader, local contractor, etc.).    

-Chad Schwitters, Executive Director


Thank you for helping us exceed our goal!
