We look forward to welcoming you and your friends!
An Art Experience Bringing Awareness to Life on the Streets
Severe Weather Shelter Network offered a brand new event in April. We were excited to have guests join us for the premiere of a new short film “The Journey Home” describing Fredericks’ experience into homelessness and the journey back again. The creativity of Karen Primus, puppeteer and filmmaker, is evident and moving in this amazing film.
Local artists, passionate about assisting people experiencing homelessness, donated art pieces to be sold for the benefit of the work of Severe Weather Shelter Network. All proceeds from the sales of these pieces went to benefit Severe Weather Shelter Network.
