For my birthday, I’m asking you to join me in supporting a cause that’s very important to me. I’m fundraising for Doorways to provide shelter and support services to youth and families experiencing homelessness and to survivors escaping abuse. Thank you in advance for your support. Your generosity changes lives.

The COVID-19 crisis has created a dire situation for our neighbors experiencing abusive relationships, living on the edge of homelessness, or already facing it. Survivors are stuck at home with their abusers. Parents have had to choose between their jobs and supporting their children’s online learning. Young adults who could couch surf pre-pandemic now face the added risk of contracting the coronavirus. But we can help. Join me in supporting Doorways, which provides shelter and support to survivors escaping abuse, and to youth and families experiencing homelessness. Give the gift of harbor, healing, and hope now.
