Walk for the Homeless 2008

Walk for the Homeless

 

Lorain County Community College cares about our community.

In early May, the Neighborhood House Association held its Walk for the Homeless 1-mile Family Walk and 5K Walk/Run on the LCCC campus.  Nearly 250 people and over 30 teams participated as walkers.  An additional 80 people volunteered to make the day a success.

The walk weaved through the scenic grounds of Ohio’s top-rated community college.

“Oh, it was a great success,” said Nancy Moore of the Neighborhood House.  The walk raised money to directly benefit the Haven Center for the Homeless.  According to the Neighborhood House, there is an average of 400 persons, each night, in Lorain County who are homeless.  The average age of a homeless person is only 5-years-old. 

“LCCC feels blessed to be able to host this event,” said Rosemary Schestag, LCCC employee and on-site coordinator. 

Since 1927, Neighborhood House Association has served Lorain County’s neighborhoods with needed social services.  Today, the NHA serves infants to elderly and offers the county’s only year-round homeless shelter.  If you are interested in helping the Neighborhood House please email at nha@nhalorain.org or contact the NHA at http://www.nhalorain.org/
