Tonight is the sold out Homeless to Hopeful event. This balloon symbolizes how we feel about the people that we shelter & serve. Meet "B", she had this balloon that she left in shelter each night. I had the opportunity to talk with her and when she left shelter, she left the balloon on my desk. In the original photos (courtesty Rick Lohre) the balloon is simply a smiley face. In the last one, she wrote Homeless but not Hopeless on it. Tonight we raise money for the guests we serve and remember that they are not hopeless. ... See MoreSee Less
