Schedule

Our virtual fundraiser has ended.

Thank you to all of our supporters who watched our livestreams, donated, and bid on our online silent auction.

Thank you for supporting our hardworking single parent families.

This past March, we postponed our Casino Night fundraiser to a hopeful date of June 12, 2020, because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, a new normal is elusive, and gatherings of the scale of Casino Night must cease for the foreseeable future. As a result, Casino Night is pivoting to an online-only event to be held Friday, May 29, 2020 - Saturday, May 30, 2020.

Our families are essential, and so is your support. Helping them remain in their homes and guiding parents toward self-sufficiency doesn’t just help them - it helps the entire community. 

These days, the news often shines a spotlight on “essential” workers: grocery store employees, nurses, delivery people, etc. These are the single working parents in our program.

There’s “Tiana,” a CNA who works in a senior living community. She was sent home with a low-grade fever and waited five sleepless nights before learning that her Coronavirus test came back “negative” - this time. “Lia” works in a grocery store, riding the bus (while wearing a face mask) to her job since she cannot afford a car. If she contracts the virus, who will care for her preschooler who has autism? Others have been laid off from work, wondering when they can return. Our goal is to make sure none of them lose their housing.
