Transformations Breakfast

Thanks to our generous supporters, GSH raised over $46,000 at the 2016 Transformations Breakfast and will be able to provide over 1,000 working-class families with a fresh start toward stable housing. Your participation will transform the lives of families on the brink of homelessness, or keep a struggling neighbor in housing with our emergency assistance, or give a school child living in our housing an enriching academic experience.

Stay tuned for information on next year’s breakfast.
