2023 Eliminate Homelessness
Virtual Fundraising Event



Dear Community Members, Supporters, and Friends,

As we embark on this transformative journey together, we extend a heartfelt welcome to each and every one of you. This mission is of great significance, touching the lives of our neighbors right here in Steele County, where the echoes of homelessness often go unheard.

In our community, the face of homelessness is diverse.
It could be the single parent working tirelessly to provide for their children, the veteran who bravely served our country, or the youth who dreams of a brighter future but faces the harsh reality of not having a stable place to call home.

Homelessness is not just a statistic; it's a human experience. It's about the individual stories of resilience, strength, and the unwavering hope for a better tomorrow. The stark reality is that no one should have to face the challenges of homelessness alone, and together, we can be the catalysts for change.

This fundraising campaign holds the key to transformation.
It is a collective effort to eliminate the barriers that keep our fellow community members from a secure and stable living environment. Your support will fund essential services, provide shelter, and offer a lifeline to those in need.


We believe in the power of community.
Your contribution, whether big or small, is a beacon of hope. It fuels our commitment to creating a Steele County where homelessness is not an obstacle but a challenge we have conquered together.


So, welcome to a journey of compassion, unity, and positive change. Together, we will make a lasting impact on the lives of those in our community, and together, we will eliminate homelessness in Steele County. Thank you for joining us on this mission.

With gratitude,

Transitional Housing of Steele County

Your support means we never have to say “no” to an eligible family again. Thank you for your ongoing support and for helping us to end the cycle of poverty and homelessness in Steele County.

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 56 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 over 450 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.
