A wonderful, community supported event at WICA last evening put on by Sno-Isle Library....Homelessness was the issue and the community came out in force. The place was filled, the energy wonderful, and the presenters were informative and the conversations afterward quite moving. Seen here from the left, JoAnne Pelant, Housing Specialist for Island County, Faith Wilder, Board President, Whidbey Homeless Coalition, Lori Cavender, Ryan's House for Youth, and Vivian Decker, Spin Cafe and Oak Harbor School District.
Please come on out and support the above event event at St. Augustines. They do so much for the homeless coalition and we are proud to partner with them.

BUILDING HOPE TOGETHER
Our fundraiser on May 14th was a resounding success. St. Augustines hosted and the people came.....We are so very grateful to the folks of Whidbey Island who showed up to suppport the work we are doing to 'make homeless a brief and rare experience in our community.' Here are a few images from our gala!
Ms. Judy Yeakel's daughter Barb painted this beauty and it will grace the House of Hope, the home Judy purchased 30 years ago to serve folks in our community. Our wonderful Advisor, Susie Richards purchased the painting in order to give it back!
Pictured here are the four amazing women who pulled off our awesome event. They worked incredibly hard for months and their hard work and generous Spirits made this an evening to remember. Thanks to Linda, Donna, Leslie and Victoria for everything....a resounding success!!
