TEN Years of Services....

 We are beginning the celebration of our TEN years of service to those that are marginalized and homeless in the Cedar Valley. We are asking for  your donations in support of our services to the marginalized and homeless...No donation is too small.

Homelessness is not a warm and fuzzy topic...however, these are REAL people with REAL stories that need REAL help. We can only help them with your continued support.

Please be a part of our village of support as we begin our TEN year anniversary kickoff celebration...
