Race to End Child Homelessness

October 30, 2016

On October 30, walk or run to end homelessness for children.

On any given night in Multnomah County, over 2,000 children experience homelessness either on the streets, in shelter, doubled up with family or friends, at a transitional housing facility or in an apartment paid for by rent assistance. Based on being homeless, as well as other adverse childhood experiences, these children face greater barriers and obstacles in their education, employment and relationships. On October 30, we will be running and walking to end the cycle of homelessness for these children and their families.

The Race to End Child Homelessness is organized by an incredible planning committee from the communities connected with New City Initiative,whose mission is engaging faith communities in ending the cycle of homelessness.

Like New City Initiative on Facebook ( and follow them on Twitter (@NewCityInit) for ongoing updates.
