Homeward Bound Walk A Success!

THANK YOU to everyone who came out to join the LIFEDesigns team on Sunday, April 14th for the Homeward Bound Walk!

We had a team of over 60 people and raised over $200 for the fight against homelessness. The funds raised benefited Shalom Center, Centerstone, MCUM, Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard and others. Even though LIFEDesigns was not an agency that benefited, we still showed up to support this great cause and other agencies in our community working to end homelessness. Thank you to the LIFEDesigns family for coming together to support our community! We appreciate your participation!
