The 35th Annual Mother’s Day Run for Shelter Fundraiser brings together 700 runners, 100 businesses, and the City of Watsonville in support of Pajaro Valley Shelter Services. PVSS' mission is to assist homeless women, children, and families to obtain stable housing through temporary shelter and services. Women, children, and families end the causes and cycles of homelessness while in PVSS' programs. Families experiencing homelessness develop the skills and attitudes necessary to move on to stable housing and improved personal and economic self-sufficiency.

When families in our community thrive, we all thrive. Proceeds from this event benefit the programs and services Pajaro Valley Shelter Services provides to families in our community. Let's live in a community where every child has a safe and stable place to sleep.
