SEARCH’s Picnic with a Purpose

While battling homelessness has been SEARCH’s focus for more than 30 years, our community’s challenges today amplify the significant race, economic, and health divides most of our clients face every day of their lives.  We provide services that move our clients from the streets and keep them stably housed, fed, and healthy. More importantly, we offer them, and each other, community, dignity, opportunity, and choice. These extraordinary times call for extraordinary acts to build our community’s health and humanity. On the evening of November 11, we will gather (with social distancing in mind) to celebrate our mission at SEARCH’s Picnic with a Purpose.
