IMPACT

We'll be supporting Grace Diner by serving a warm meal, and sharing various healthcare, food, and government resources by pooling our energy and partnering with local service vendors. Your presence can help create a welcoming, supportive, and safer environment for our community.

Our unhoused neighbors are not getting their basic needs met, which everyone deserves. They are deprived of nutritious meals, healthcare needs, and shelter. When we work with fellow volunteers to offer a welcoming connection and meet the urgent needs of people living outside, our entire community benefits.
