Welcome to our annual Eliminate Homelessness Virtual Fundraiser!
We have a lot to celebrate over the last year. We continue to be humbled by the generosity of the residents and businesses of Steele County as we far exceeded our fundraising goals. This allowed us to continue to help more families prevent evictions and find long-term housing solutions.
Additionally, fall of 2022 brought us to our new home at Community Pathways. In the words of our Executive Director Julie Anderson, "This expansion and central hub of all these organizations is going to do great things, and I'm really excited to see it all happen." We've already seen an increase in traffic and inquiries into our programs.
Despite our success, demand for our services remains high. In 2022 we continue to see more inquires and an increased wait-list for our services. As the cost of living increases for everyone, this pushes more families to the breaking-point financially. Some find themselves facing eviction after getting behind on rent. Some are already without a home and rely on couch-hopping with friends, family or their vehicles for temporary shelter. This is where you can help.
Donations to Transitional Housing of Steele County go directly to helping families in Steele County avoid and recover from homelessness. We've decided to continue to do our annual fundraiser virtually (rather than hosting a breakfast and lunch as we have done in years past) to keep our expenses a low as possible to respect your generosity.

Support our Campaign
While we have helped hundreds of people each year, the demand is far greater than what we can provide. Every month, an average of 30 families are turned away due to a lack of funding. Our waiting list of families who need our help continues to grow.
The agency received 374 phone calls or personal visits from families or individuals who were homeless or were at risk of becoming homeless. The agency responded by assisting in referrals, navigation and advocacy.
The pandemic has not only increased our agency's demand, but also forced us to connect with donors in a way we've never done before.
Please help us as we fight to eliminate homelessness in Steele County by making a generous gift and/or sharing our cause with friends.
