Description

Register today for The Home Run 10K, 5K, and Kids K in support of the Barrett House. Many know of our shelter and the services and support we provide. But did you know we also administer four housing programs that served over 200 adults and children last year?  Our supportive housing programs each have a dedicated case manager that works with single individuals as well as single parents and families. Barrett is dedicated to assisting all people experiencing homelessness so that everyone has the opportunity to live independently and contribute to the vitality of our community.  Barrett Foundation has a reputation on the streets as the place to get help.  We are proud of the trust we have built with those we serve, as well as the trust we’ve built with you as good stewards of your support. As we approach a new year, we continue to explore new opportunities to expand our services and the number of people we serve.  We could not do this without you.  So, join us on February 27, 2022, and help support the Barrett House.
