Breakfast aids the fight against homelessness
Submitted By Katie Derrig
On March 7, Abode Services hosts their annual "Journey Home Breakfast Fundraiser" to help in the fight to end homelessness.
Originally Tri-City Homeless Coalition, Abode has been serving southern Alameda County since 1989 with the mission "to end homelessness by assisting low-income, un-housed people, including those with special needs, to secure stable, supportive housing, and to be advocates for the removal of the causes of homelessness."
Offering emergency shelter, transitional housing, and permanent supportive housing, Abode helps individuals, families, and youth return to stable living. Services also include job counseling and placement, life skills classes, financial literacy training, as well as mental healthcare counseling, drug and alcohol counseling, parenting classes, and children's program and support groups.
As their singular fundraising event, the Journey Home Breakfast garners donations and pledges from the community that are essential to providing much needed services to thousands of people. The morning is an opportunity to hear success stories from families and individuals in the program, learn about what Abode is doing in the community, and enjoy a complimentary breakfast.
Have a breakfast that will do some good and join Abode Services, community advocates, and event sponsors and take part in the mission to end homelessness.
Check-in begins at 7 a.m. with the breakfast beginning at 7:30 a.m. Individual guest seats are limited; RSVP by Thursday, February 21 to Carol Arata at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (510) 657-7409 ext. 203.
