Bridge to Home, the primary homeless services provider in the Santa Clarita Valley, wants to thank the community for their support of our annual Soup for the Soul fundraiser.
The event, held Oct. 13, welcomed some 250 guests to the rooftop in Old Town Newhall. Between ticket sales, generous sponsorships and an auction – Bridge to Home raised a total of $105,643.
“It was heartwarming to see the community come together to help our most vulnerable neighbors,” said Bridge to Home Board President Peggy Edwards. “The money raised from Soup for the Soul will provide valuable resources to help those who have fallen upon hard times get the assistance, resources and support they need to find permanent housing.”
Soup for the Soul guests braved the chilly night to enjoy a variety of hot soups served in flights, scintillating wines, tempting appetizers, craft brews, decadent desserts and so much more.
Bridge to Home provides support services – including an emergency winter shelter, case management, housing navigation, and referrals to medical, mental health, and substance use services– that help individuals and families in the Santa Clarita Valley transition out of homelessness. All these resources and services are available thanks to funds from the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, subcontracts with Los Angeles Family Housing, private and public grants, and extensive in-kind donations and participation from the local community.
Currently Bridge to Home is planning to open up shelter services year-round beginning this spring. This will allow for more comprehensive services and resources to make a true and lasting impact on homelessness in our City. To make that happen Bridge to Home needs additional support from the community.
