Dear Friends and Members of Saint Stephen,
It is hard to stay at home when you don't have one.
Join us at Saint Stephen Lutheran Church in supporting our neighbors experiencing homelessness during this pandemic crisis.
We all know the comforts of home. Especially now. There are few things in life as heartbreaking as losing your home. And there is nothing better than finding your way back. Will you join us in helping the individuals and families in our community find their way home?
On Saturday May 2nd, we will be "SleepingOut" to raise funds & awareness for PADS Lake County! During this time of social distancing, SleepOut in Place presents an opportunity for our community to join together virtually while physically apart. In addition to setting up a campsite in your backyard or living room, participants can further their engagement in a healthy and safe way from the comfort of their own homes through a digital rally to kick things off at 7PM.
For over 30 years, PADS has worked to create a community where homelessness is rare, brief, and non-recurring by providing a comprehensive approach to reducing homelessness. Their programs all seek to help our neighbors create sturdy foundations in homes so that they can build brighter futures for themselves and contribute to our community.
