HRI Presents A Walk to End Homelessness 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 1,000 households were helped by HRI in 2020! And with expected Federal and State resources, we expect to serve many more Kalamazoo residents experiencing homelessness.   

Now more than ever, people experiencing homelessness need our help! While the 2021 virtual walk week  is over, you can still make a difference. Click the Donate Now button to help end homelessness.
