Why the Race
The Race for the Homeless 2016 will run for its 17th year in Vancouver, Washington. Once again, the race will benefit Open House Ministries. 100% of the race fee will be matched with a generous donation to Open House Ministries. Last year $8,000 was given to this organization to help homeless families regain their independence.
Why Open House Ministries
Since incorporation in 1986, Open House Ministries has provided shelter, safety, and hope to families without homes. Their program focus is to equip families with life skills and foundational tools to help them regain healthy, independent lives. They accomplish this through personalized case management, strong community networks, volunteer support, and the generous endowments of our caring community. Each family agrees to participate in a program designed to assist them in resolving their homeless situation.
