Odds and Ends

We finally received our new brochures yesterday! They have been long awaited for our volunteer recruitment efforts. If anyone is interested we would be happy to give you a handful to pass along to friends or coworkers. Remember: we always need new volunteers!

Bags2Riches is quickly approaching. We still need a few volunteers for the gala and fashion show. It is going to be a great evening and if you would like to volunteer you can get in for FREE! Food, prizes, games, fashion, art.... you name it and we've got it. To learn more visit

We are also very excited about our September training(s). We are trying a new approach. We will offer a training series downtown during the noon hour. The dates are September 8, 10 and 17 at Bingham McHale. This is a great opportunity for anyone who works downtown, but also would like to learn more about how they can get involved in our effort to prevent homelessness. The best part is that lunch will be provided! To learn more about the trainings or RSVP email Bryan at

Remember: spread the word, share your suggestions and stay in touch!

On Wednesday evening we celebrated the accomplishments of many individuals. Lee continues to excel and is beginning his second semester at IUPUI. Ivory has found a job and has a 4.0 GPA, and Lisa is close to owning her own home. All of these mentees have accomplished many great things, and we are proud of them. We are also very proud of the volunteer mentors who have been there to help them and encourage them as they take the next step!
