HOW Clients

Housing Rx - Lived Experiences

While every client arrives at HOW with their own story, health often is a contributing factor to their housing instability or homelessness. The second speaker series session on HOW's Day of Giving offers supporters a chance to hear from clients directly as they share the how stable housing changed their lives. If HOW raises $10,000 through its Day of Giving the agency will unlock a $10,000 matching gift!  

Coming Soon!
