Thank you for joining us at this year's Closer to Home virtual fundraiser!
Your support opens doors to opportunity
To our incredible Bellwether Housing community: thank you. Thank you for making this year's Closer to Home an incredible success. This week, we celebrated the work of our amazing staff. We heard incredible and honest stories from our residents, like Marlon. We reflected on 40 years of bold visions, and we looked forward to a future of opportunity, community, and growth.
"I've been here for two years, and it's just been amazing. My career is excelling and I've never been so happy" - Marlon, resident of Bellwether Housing
Together, we raised over $340,000 and counting. Every dollar raised at Closer to Home helps provide our 3,500 residents with supportive services, healthy meals, and educational resources.
You can still take part in Closer to Home. Watch our event below, and deepen your impact by giving today.
