Lisa's Cycle for Shelter Page
Thanks for visiting my Cycle For Shelter page!
On Sunday, July 23, 2017, Rob and I will climb aboard our tandem bike and join fellow cyclists in the 29th Annual Cycle for Shelter — a 100 mile ride to support the important work of Emmaus, Inc.
Through our efforts, we're raising critically-needed funds to support Emmaus programs that help families and individuals who are homeless to rebuild their lives. On any given night, more than 350 adults and children call "Emmaus" home. Located in Haverhill, MA, Emmaus programs assist more than 4,000 different people each year, including more than 2,300 children! Emmaus has been recognized in Massachusetts and nationally as a best-practice model for responding to homelessness. Their programs and services include emergency shelters, affordable housing, homelessness prevention and housing stabilization services, and education and job training, as well as community outreach.
Cycle for Shelter brings together hundreds of riders, volunteers and others like us who care deeply about creating solutions to the tragedy of homelessness. We are called by our collective spiritual and social responsibility to serve all people in need—the homeless, disadvantaged, disabled, unemployed, and oppressed.
