Every year the Coalition celebrates the accomplishments of its members, the community, and the supporters at our Annual Dinner and Award Ceremony. This has long been an opportunity for organizations and individuals to come together and to share in the success of another year working alongside those experiencing homelessness.
Come celebrate with hundreds of individuals working towards this common goal. Help us recognize individuals who will be receiving awards for their hard work that evening, raise money for operating funds to help sustain our mission, and dance and celebrate another year of hard work!
Join us on Thursday, December 12, 2019 for a night of dinner, awards, dancing and a silent auction.
