Homeless No More event aims to give shelter to Michigan’s most vulnerable

by | Dec 21, 2018 | Community Services

The up-coming Homeless No More event is designed to raise funds and create partnerships in an effort to help some of our most vulnerable Michiganders. 

Earlier this year, Holy Cross Services stepped up to save a long-serving homeless shelter in Lansing. The community came dangerously close to losing the facility in 2018, after admirably serving the community for 122 years. 

At the time, Volunteers of America Michigan, the previous operator of the center, worked out an agreement to transfer the services to Holy Cross. No, we’re turning to our community to help us in our bid to continue this valuable service.  A large part of our fundraising will come from our Homeless No More event held on February 27, 2019. This event will help raise awareness and funding for the important Lansing shelter, renamed the New Hope Community Center.  

In previous years, this event has raised valuable funding for our services. In 2018, donors to Homeless No More raised enough funding to pay for:  

  • 3,324 nights of Emergency Shelter to men, women and children 
  • 2,713 nights of hotel lodging for families when shelters are full 
  • 7,234 services in New Hope Day Center 
  • 2,098 nights of shelter for homeless veterans. 
  • 22,950 hot, nutritious meals in our Community Kitchen 

For our big event, we have a host of fundraising opportunities, including six sponsorship packages. Those different levels of donations range from Immediate Needs sponsorships ($1,000 to $2,499) at one end of the spectrum all the way up to Champion Sponsorships ($50,000 or more).  

Help us in our mission to help all Michigan families. Together we offer hope.
