You're Invited

Mayor John Giles invites you to join us for the More than a Meal virtual event.

YOU make all the difference in our community. Now it’s your turn to be encouraged with a message of hope, perseverance and triumph.

Be Renewed

In this season of disappointment and uncertainty, you’ll be renewed with a fresh mindset and see how to respond when life hands you a tough spot.

Liz Murray, Homeless to Harvard

Award-winning speaker and author Liz Murray will take you on a very personal journey where she achieves the improbable. Her life sounds like a Hollywood movie–and it practically is. Lifetime Television produced a movie about Murray’s story called Homeless to Harvard.

You‘ll get to hear Liz live with time for Q&A at our biggest event of the year. We hope you‘ll join us!
