Center for Homeless hosts luncheon for residents, community
SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- The Center for the Homeless hosted its "Holiday Miracle Luncheon" for both people in the community and guests staying at the center giving them a chance to get out and really enjoy the season.
It was also a chance to inspire those in need.
This year's speaker Liz Murray told her story of how she overcame homelessness and eventually earned her degree at Harvard.
"Holidays is probably the hardest time for the guests at the center so this is a wonderful opportunity for them to come out--they get to dress up a little bit, eat a nice lunch and interact with community members that they don't usually see on a regular basis," said Emily Sims of the Center for Homeless.
The luncheon is the biggest annual fundraiser for the center.
The Center for the Homeless has been open for 24 years.
