26th Annual Winter Walk: a Mile in Her Shoes

This event helps you better understand homelessness through the eyes of those who struggle with it first-hand. Participants walk together on a one-mile route through the Uptown neighborhood while listening to stories of women who have rebuilt their lives with Sarah's Circle's help.
