Family Service Emergency Homeless Shelter benefit raises over $226,000


The goal of the Family Service Emergency Homeless Shelter is to support neighbors who are experiencing homelessness, and ultimately lead them on the journey back to permanent housing.

Driving this process are dedicated Family Service staff, volunteers, partners and benefactors, many of whom were in attendance at the 11th annual Family Service Emergency Homeless Shelter Benefit. The fundraiser took place at Aldie Mansion in Doylestown, and through their philanthropic support, it raised more than $226,000.

During the program, Julie Dees, Family Service chief executive officer, highlighted the significance of supporting the Shelter Benefit each year.

“You help fund the most important part of the Shelter program – our staff,” Dees said. “They are the heroes, who offer hope and healing to the people that come through our doors and set them on the path for success.”

Guests were treated to an elegant evening of music, dancing, cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and dinner. There was also a call to action and live auction.
