Edie's Walkers

On May 18th, I and at least one of my grandchildren will be walking a 5K for Christian Churches United.  This is part of the Highmark Walk on the HAAC campus in Harrisburg.  All funds we raise will benefit Susquehanna Harbor Safe Haven which provides long-term housing and support, as well as winter overnight walk-in sleeping space, for men facing chronic homelessness in Harrisburg.   

Since SHSH opened in 2009, chronic homelessness in Harrisburg has dropped 70%!  This past year, 32 men were helped off the street into long-term housing and another 105 had a place to sleep at the Winter Overnight Safe Haven.  Tht's over 9,000 nights of housing!

Please consider sponsoring us for this walk!  It would mean a lot to us and to the homeless community!  Thank you in advance!

PS - The profile pic is from last year's walk.  The weather didn't cooperatre with us.  Hoping for sunny skies this year!
