Homeless Connections Exceeds 15 in 15 Challenge Goal

Appleton, Wisconsin (December 14, 2015) —

SECURA Insurance and Homeless Connections partnered to raise awareness and funds during National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week. SECURA, through its corporate charitable fund at the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region, offered to match up to $15,000 in contributions to Homeless Connections within a 15 day period. In total, Homeless Connections raised $47,464 in unrestricted funds during the 15-day period that ran November 15 to November 30.

This is the second year the two organizations partnered on the 15 in 15 challenge.

"Once again, our community has responded with great enthusiasm to this challenge," said Homeless Connections Executive Director Jerome Martin, "Much of our revenue comes in the final months of the year, and SECURA's support through the 15 in 15 Challenge helps us meet our year-end goal."

Homeless Connections has seen a high demand for services in 2015. Homeless Connections' shelter has operated at or above capacity all but one night this year. The Street Outreach and Prevention Programs also see growing demand for services.

Homeless Connections (formerly the Emergency Shelter of the Fox Valley) is ending homelessness by connecting individuals and families to resources that promote self-sufficiency and prevent future homeless episodes. Homeless Connections serves approximately 3,000 individuals each year through four core areas of impact: Shelter, Case Management, Street Outreach, and Prevention. It is the only homeless shelter in the Fox Cities that serves families regardless of cause of homelessness and collaborates with other like-minded organizations to provide case management to its clients and improve the quality of living for those we serve and for the community as a whole.
