EUMA's The Refuge Homeless Shelter for families

Erie Gives kids on steps.JPGWhen you donate to EUMA through this event -- you are helping children and their families move from homeless to home – from hopeless to hope in a brighter tomorrow – even during this pandemic.  

Every child deserves a home… that’s why EUMA’s The Refuge exists… to end immediate homelessness – provide critical emergency shelter, basic necessities, faithful support, and a commitment to ending homelessness – not
merely addressing it.

Last year, 92 families were sheltered at EUMA’s The Refuge, including 194 children. With your help, 70% of the families that stayed at EUMA’s The Refuge last year moved into a permanent home of their own.

EUMA’s The Refuge operates primarily on your private donations - we depend on your support as we work to keep homeless families with children safe during this COVID-19 crisis.
