Who We Walk For
Homelessness as a condition embraces a wide range of economic and social factors that include poverty, housing, substance abuse, unemployment, discrimination, mental health, and social support.
In each community where the WALK is hosted, we partner with one well-known charity with a proven, committed history of service to the hungry, homeless, and hurting in their town.
Walking in February is particularly helpful because volunteerism and contributions are at a peak around the Christmas holiday season, but then slow down considerably in the new year. By February - the coldest month of the year - resources have dwindled. So it's the perfect time to come together to restock the balance sheet while refocusing on the needs as winter wears on.
