Thank You for Helping Homeless Women
Reach Their Goals!
Thanks to everyone who helped to make this year’s annual fundraising dinner successful. We enjoyed catching up with friends, honoring this year’s award recipients WINS and Fischer Plumbing, celebrating the accomplishments of 2016, and hearing the stories from two resilient women who are working to overcome homelessness.
Josie (left) and Emily (right) shared their stories of how they became homeless and how EGH has helped them turn their lives around. Josie participates in EGH’s Transitional Housing Program. She recently enrolled in classes at North Seattle College, and in fact, has been nominated as the next Vice President of their honor society. Emily lives in a 1984 recreational vehicle and relies on support and services at the EGH Day Center. In the past month, she began two part-time jobs, and reunited face-to-face with her 14 year old son for the first time in over a year.
2017 Annual Benefit Dinner Photo Gallery
Nearly 300 supporters gathered for Elizabeth Gregory Home’s 11th Annual Dinner on March 19, 2017. It was a powerful and moving evening that featured testimonials from two clients, Josie and Emily. Each described the rigors of homelessness, contrasted with how life has transformed as a result of the services offered at EGH. Thanks to raising over $120,000, Elizabeth Gregory Home aspires to provide a safe and compassionate refuge to even more vulnerable women over the next year. We are grateful for the gifts from our generous community of individuals, businesses, and sponsors!
