Happy Spring! A new season brings new opportunities for you to support our clients and help end homelessness in our community. Here are a few ways you can help support MCCH clients during spring and summer!
Last month, MMCTV provided the
opportunity for MCCH to educate the community on the issue of homelessness on their show Inside Out. MCCH Executive Director Susie Sinclair-Smith shared the work MCCH does to support 1,600 men, women and children each year, and how people can get involved in our upcoming events!
Join us on Thursday, May 2, 2019 at Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center as we honor Adventist Healthcare and Kaiser Permanente in recognition of their extraordinary commitment to serving vulnerable populations, including people experiencing homelessness, by recognizing that housing is a social determinant of health.
There are many ways to get involved in our 2019 gala:
Due to limited financial resources, we aren't always able to provide clients with the items they need beyond basic necessities. That's where a special group of people in our Urgent Needs Task Force Facebook group jump in and provide these items!
Our Urgent Needs Task Force group has grown to over 300 members and provided over 10 items last month! Although it may seem like a small gesture, donating these items shows our clients that their community cares about them. When recovering from the trauma of homelessness, that reminder can be a glimmer of light in the darkness.
