More than a roof, families need a strong foundation to rebuild a happy home. Love makes a family! A roof and a strong foundation make a happy home!
Who do you wish to celebrate on Mother's Day? Yourself? Your mother? Your guardian? Your grandmother? Your aunt? Your girlfriend? Your partner? Your caretaker?
At Pajaro Valley Shelter Services, we celebrate families every day. On Mother's Day, we host a run & walk to raise crucial funds for our self-sufficiency programs. More than a roof, PVSS provides a strong foundation for families to rebuild a happy home.
Join us on Mother's Day to outrun and outwalk family homelessness.
In addition to registering or if you can't participate this year, create your own fundraiser and invite your community to help you raise funds for families at PVSS: https://charity.gofundme.com/o/en/campaign/2020-mothers-day-run-and-walk-for-shelter.
Here's how funds raised translate into action at PVSS:
$100 = 4 one-hour meetings with a case manager for families
$50 = 1 hour of counseling for domestic violence for a single mom
$25 = 1 night of emergency shelter for a single mom & her child
$15 = 1 day of nutritious food for a family of 4
