A RACE WITH A PURPOSE

Benefitting Open House Ministries

Why We Race

The Race for the Homeless 2018 will run for its 19th year in Vancouver, Washington. Once again, 100% of the race fee will benefit Open House Ministries. Last year, $8,500 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.
