Women in Housing & Finance Members, 

I am very excited to share with you that the Women in Housing & Finance Foundation has created a team for Calvary Women’s Services’ virtual 5k called In This Together.

What: In This Together Virtual 5k (walk/run/bike)
When: October 5-11 (complete the 5k all at once or broken out over the week)
Why: Support one of the Foundation’s non-profit partners, Calvary Women’s Services in providing safe housing for women who are homeless in our community.

Registration Details:

Calvary is such an important organization, but it has become even more critical since the pandemic started. Calvary’s mission is to help women end their homelessness for good through housing, education, employment and health programs. As you can imagine, the past few months have been a difficult and trying time for the women at Calvary. 56% of women lost their jobs due to COVID, permanent housing plans are on hold, and mental health is harder to maintain because of added stress and worry. Calvary has also faced hardships as an organization both operationally and financially because of the pandemic. Despite all of this, Calvary has kept its doors open for women who need it most. They have added an additional $1,000 a day in expenses in order to keep women and staff safe. During a difficult time, Calvary gives women hope and reminds us that progress can still be made no matter what. In fact, since June, six women have regained employment and seven women have moved into their own homes, ending their homelessness! I hope I can count on all of you to join the WHF Foundation in supporting Calvary. Just a reminder that you can sign up to complete the 5k and join our team here: https://charity.gofundme.com/o/en/campaign/in-this-together
