All proceeds from this event support our Transitional Shelter, Affordable Housing, educational programs and supportive services to hundreds of homeless women and children in McHenry County and Northern Illinois each year. Last year, we provided services to over 450 individuals.

Our mission is to provide Hope, Opportunity and Support that empowers women and children as they journey from homelessness to self-sufficiency.
