BUILD YOUR BRAND & YOUR COMMUNITY
We’re looking for sponsors for a unique event to benefit Well House, a nonprofit that aggressively targets homelessness and poverty by transitioning homeless individuals and families into safe, affordable and permanent housing.
On December 10, we’re hosting ‘The Danceoff’ at The Pyramid Scheme. We’ll be pitting 16 contestants head-to-head in a showdown of their best moves to crown the ultimate dance champ of Grand Rapids.The venue has been donated and we’ve had several local musicians agree to offer their talents as well. Now, we’re looking for help from you.
Well House’s model is simple: we purchase and renovate houses, then move in people who are currently staying in emergency shelters, on the streets, in cars or in encampments. While Well House has been providing a haven for the homeless since 1978, we doubled our size in 2013 and have added an additional ten homes to the original three houses. We now have thirteen fully renovated homes that can house up to 46 people on any given night. Since January 2013, Well House has moved more than 128 people out of homelessness and as of today, 86 percent of those served have stayed that way, even though we target those least likely to be housed by other organizations.
In addition to providing housing in Southeast Grand Rapids, we grow organic food on three vacant lots and in the yards of all of our homes. We offer employment opportunities for our tenants either working in our gardens or on the rehabilitation of the homes, or refer them to other entities where they may find gainful employment.
Our work is only possible with the community’s full support. We’re excited to be partnering with The Danceoff as a fun way to raise awareness and funds for our group, and we hope that your organization can help us. Your sponsorship funds will go directly towards getting more people off the street and into housing. Well House is a 501(c)3 organization.
