- Approximately 3.5 million people or 1% of the U.S. population experience homelessness each year.
There has never been a better opportunity for you to help us help our local woman, children and families right here in Southwest Michigan who need help and they need help now.
My broadcast company Townsquare Media and the staff at our local stations our holding our 13th annual Roof Sit for the Haven of Rest Inasmuch House.
Opened in 1986, the Inasmuch House is a temporary emergency shelter with stays up to 30-60 days. The Inasmuch House is the only homeless shelter in Calhoun County that tries to keep homeless families together.
The Inasmuch House not only provides emergency temporary housing but also offers the residents advocacy, life-skills and empowerment classes, support groups, case management and referrals to social service agencies are available to residents through qualified shelter staff.
So help us help our local woman, children and families find that temporary help they need to get back to the path of self dependency.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
