Help Meet Arm In Arm’s #50FamilyChallenge!

Help Meet Arm In Arm’s #50FamilyChallenge!

James: “Arm In Arm helped me get on the right track.” Beatrice: “People just need a little help from time to time, then they can go on to help someone else.” Margaret: “What if there weren’t agencies like Arm In Arm? Where would my daughter and I be today?”

Last year James, Beatrice, and Margaret turned to Arm In Arm when they faced eviction. And their families—and many more—not only avoided the heartbreak of homelessness, but remain stable a year later!

YOUR GIFT to the #50FamilyChallenge will help a family stay safe, sound, and secure—this summer and beyond.
