ROOTS Rise Up Dinner

Thank you for joining us for our 2018 Rise Up Dinner. We were thrilled to share such and amazing experience with everyone. The ongoing challenge of homelessness continues to impact our world daily. For young people to know that there is a community that cares is vital! For you to know that you are part of a special group of people that puts caring into action is the most important thing we can give back to you. As ROOTS forges ahead with the work of finding a new home, we know that we are not alone! Thanks to your generosity and support, we raised $172,110 to help young people in need.

Your support changes the lives of our guests and for that we all extend a heartfelt thank you. Your dollars will go to ensure that young people have hot food when they arrive, that they can do laundry, and that they will have a warm and safe place to sleep at night.

As we learned from our speakers, we are all in this together. For ROOTS, your gift means no interruptions in life-saving shelter, no threats to our new jobs and case management programs, and a stronger network of compassion for everyone involved.
