2017 Annual Meeting




Many thanks to all who joined us on December 7th at the New Haven Lawn Club as we celebrated you and all those who assist with our mission of ending homelessness. Insights speaker, Hershel, left our guests inspired with his account of experiencing homelessness. (Watch a video of his speech above.) Keynote speaker Sharon Kugler, Yale University Chaplain, shared encouragement and hope, quoting a beautiful essay, "We Were Made For These Times," by Clarissa Pinkola Estes. We presented the 2017 John S. Martinez Community Service Award to our guests of honor, Stephen Peterson, Liberty Bank and North Guilford Congregational Church, and bid farewell to retiring Board members Mark Fopeano and Cathy Velez. We are grateful to our generous event sponsors for their support! View photos of the even on Facebook.
