A Note from Our Homeless No More Committee Chair
As we stand on the cusp of a brand-new year and the promise of a leap year, we are filled with gratitude and excitement as we prepare for our 13th Annual Homeless No More fundraiser on February 29, 2024. It’s a remarkable milestone, showcasing the enduring commitment of our Lansing community to the New Hope Center and the families it serves. Reflecting upon our years as the Homeless No More Committee, we are in awe of the unwavering support and dedication displayed by our incredible community. This leap year holds a special significance for us, propelling us into new heights of compassion
and determination. Our leap of faith is an acknowledgment that together, we can soar to greater heights, alleviating homelessness and creating a brighter future for those in need. The generosity and compassion demonstrated by each of you over the years have made a lasting difference in the lives of many. In this 13th year of our esteemed fundraiser, I invite you to take a leap of faith with us-renew your commitment, stand with us, and continue supporting our cause. Your participation in this event is a testament to the strength of our community, exemplifying the power of collective action in creating positive change.
Our community has shown time and again that when we come together, amazing things happen. Let’s seize this leap year as an opportunity to extend our support, share our resources, and strengthen our bonds. I express my heartfelt gratitude to all who have stood steadfast in their support and extend a warm welcome to those joining us for the first time.
Join me as we leap forward, celebrating not only our 13th year of making a difference but also the 75+ Years of Heart that Holy Cross Services embodies. Your continued support is a beacon of hope, lighting the way for a future where homelessness is but a memory, replaced by hope and opportunity for all.
With Sincere Appreciation,
Chair, Homeless No More Committee 2024
About the New Hope Community Center
For decades, the New Hope Community Center (“New Hope”) has been a pillar for people experiencing homelessness in Lansing. At the request of the community, Holy Cross Services assumed operations of the facility in 2018. Today, New Hope is one of the region’s largest homeless shelters and is the area’s only “low-barrier” facility – meaning we eliminate as many barriers as we can to ensure all neighbors have access to emergency shelter.
Every year, New Hope needs $500,000+ in donations to keep the shelter operational. With these funds, New Hope can keep families together, offer emergency care and nourishment for children, adults, and veterans experiencing homelessness, and help our unhoused neighbors find permanent housing. Through the 2024 Homeless No More event, New Hope hopes to raise $523,560 toward its annual fundraising target.’
