A Happy Hour to Support the Homeless

Food. Drinks. Networking. All to raise awareness and support for the homeless community in Howard County.

We had a great time at our Leola Dorsey Announcement Happy Hour hosted by Greene Turtle on February 7.

The event marked the launch of our continued partnership with Greene Turtle. We also provided an update on the Leola Dorsey Center, our permanent supportive housing facility under construction in Howard County.

The center—named after the local civil rights activist—will feature 35 units of permanent housing for the chronically homeless. Read our article about the center.

We also announced that the center will open earlier than expected–by July 1 of this year!
