More than a dinner, a way out of poverty

Did you know that dining with friends has the potential to help homeless women and children out of poverty?

Don’t believe us? Here’s proof. Because so many of our friends supported our 2017 dinner-dance fundraiser, so far in 2018 My Sister’s Place has been able to:

  • Provide 1,100 nights of shelter for the homeless.
  • Give 16 homeless children a stable home – something many have not had in years.
  • Serve more than 3,200 nutritious meals to food insecure individuals.
  • Help 26 homeless women on their journey out of poverty, moving themselves and their families forward.
  • Eliminate barriers that were preventing no-and low-income women from obtaining and retaining employment. These barriers included: transportation, childcare, soft skills and clothing.
  • Launch an affordable housing initiative to help low-income families not pay more than 30% of their household income on rent. This threshold has been established by the U.S. Department Housing and Urban Development, or HUD.

The year isn’t over yet and we can still use your help! Buy a ticket today to attend our annual dinner-dance fundraiser at the Chattahoochee Country Club on Thursday, October 4, 2018. Just the simple act of dining with your family, co-workers or friends has the power to help an individual break the cycle of poverty.

The dinner-dance will feature a delicious meal, live auction and foot tapping entertainment by Back In Time band (Jonathan Jackson, Bob Cowles,
Tom Wallace, Michael Crook, Rory Crook, Mercer Crook, Glenn Brown, John Harriman and Chuck McKissick).

Be the change, have a heart.

You’re going to have dinner anyway, why not eat with intention by supporting our mission to help homeless women and children?
