Eau Claire (FAMILY PROMISE OF THE CHIPPEWA VALLEY) – The 15th annual Hike for the Homeless is September 29 at Phoenix Park.
Hike for the Homeless benefits Family Promise of the Chippewa Valley, an organization that helps shelter homeless children and their families. The funds raised will be used to support the activities of the organization related to the Beacon House including shelter operations, case management and rental assistance.
Family homelessness appears to be on the rise in the Eau Claire area. More families are seeking services and the needs of the families are becoming greater. With new development, rising rents, a lack of affordable housing, it is becoming harder for families with limited income to find housing.
