Community Resource Exchange

The 2019 Community Resource Exchange will be on
Wednesday, March 13th

The Community Resource Exchange is an event that unites caring people, business and nonprofits who want to see homelessness solved for every person who spends sleepless nights outside alone.

Thanks to a generous partnership with Starbucks, we’re bringing Family Resource Exchange events into the community to meet families where they’re at and provide resources they need throughout the year.
