Local Shows Support HousingFest

We are thrilled to have local partners and musicians who are contributing to HousingFest in order to help us house our neighbors experiencing chronic homelessness.

Justin Fedor and Reeve Coobs will perform at the second annual HousingFest Unplugged on April 28, 6-9pm, The Barrel Room at Triple C Brewing. This event is again presented by Urban Ministry Center’s young professionals, the Urbanites. A suggested $10 donation gets you in the door and a give-back on all pints sold that evening will also help raise funds to help house our chronically homeless neighbors.

A portion of each ticket is donated back to Urban Ministry Center to help provide housing for chronically homeless individuals. Last year’s HousingFest raised nearly $50,000, enough to house three people for one year.
