Impact of Your Support
Thank you so much to all of you who have made gifts to support Hundred Nights. I can’t tell you how much your support means to the men, women and children who come to Hundred Nights because we help give them hope for a brighter future.
For those who have no home, whether a man who has lost his job and can no longer pay his rent or a woman and children who had to leave an abusive situation, being newly homeless in our community can be frightening. For those suffering with multiple issues such as mental illness or substance misuse, the added burden of homelessness can quickly become life-threatening. But it doesn’t have to be that way, thanks to those who lend a hand through their support of Hundred Nights.
The hope you give through your simple act of caring can help those who seek a safe home get back on their feet. The support they receive year-round through Hundred Nights, whether shelter in the cold or access to a computer and assistance applying for jobs, helps hundreds of people of all ages to get back on a path to a warm, safe home.
Thank you all for being a part of our community – your generosity will change and save lives, giving hope to those among us who are working to regain the warmth of home.
