HRI Presents A Walk to End Homelessness 2021! 

A Virtual Week of Events March 20–28, 2021

#STEPOUT to End Homelessness!  

A Pandemic Changes Our Process, But Never Our Mission!

HRI continues to hold the frontline against homelessness but we have more work to do and we need your help!   

In 2020, HRI housed people experiencing homelessness and kept people in their homes by preventing evictions and providing $3M+ in back rent, rental subsidies, utility payments and other needs in 2020. Over 900 households were helped by HRI in 2020!

Now more than ever, people experiencing homelessness need our help! Help us kick off a week full of exciting virtual events starting on March 20 and concluding March 28. Click here for the full event schedule!

You can pick up your event packets in person on March 20 via our Drive Up and Donate event from 9 to 11:30 am at the Kalamazoo Growlers Stadium. Anyone who donates $35 or more online or that day, will receive a custom designed Walk 2021 t-shirt. People who attend on March 20 kick off event will receive a swag bag of sponsor goodies!

Please start your own virtual fundraising team and invite your friends and family     

Please register, start a team, join a team or donate now.
