The Tacoma Rescue Mission HopeGivers Luncheon
March 24 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
The Tacoma Rescue Mission invites you to partner with us this year to create a safe haven where vulnerable, homeless women from our community can escape the streets and begin rebuilding their lives, for themselves and those they love.
Please come along side other fellow community leaders to make a life-saving difference for homeless women in our community who have nowhere else to go. Take a stand for homeless women throughout Pierce County by attending this impactful event and becoming a part of this important solution.
The Mission has begun construction on a new 12,000 sf, 50-120 bed shelter for homeless women in our community. The County estimates there are 500-600 women experiencing homelessness in Pierce County at any given time with only 55 shelter spots available. 40-50 homeless women are turned away from shelter each night and are left on their own to survive. A recent study reported 52% of women surveyed were either sexually or physically assaulted during their current experience of homelessness. They need our help. The Mission expects to shelter and assist 300-400 homeless, unaccompanied women annually.
Along with shelter and meals, women will have access to expert case management, housing and employment services, education, mental health, legal services and more to help them overcome the challenges that have contributed to their homelessness. Help us provide these women with A PATHWAY HOME where they can have a real chance to begin again.
