Thanks to your generosity, we met our goal for this year’s breakfast of raising funds needed to help families with children find and maintain stable housing.
Thanks to your support, this year’s Homes for Families Breakfast was a huge success. We were able to reach our goal of raising $385,000 (exact amounts are still being calculated) to help families with children transition from homelessness to housing. These funds represent a significant portion of our annual budget and are essential in helping us work toward our goal of ensuring every child in our community has a home.
Over 500 people attended this year’s breakfast. As Kristin Rucinski, Executive Director of The Road Home said at the event, “We can’t do this alone. It takes local funders, like United Way of Dane County, the City of Madison, and Dane County Human Services. It takes collaborations with other agencies, such as The Salvation Army and YWCA. And it takes the support of our entire community in different ways. Whether you’re a volunteer, a donor, a landlord, or somebody who has helped make connections to landlords or employers or developers, or if you’re learning about family homelessness for the first time here today, you are a part of our community-wide change.”
Thank you to our guests, table hosts and sponsors who made this event a success and ensured that we can continue making a difference for families in our community experiencing homelessness.
