Join Hudson River Housing for an evening of fellowship on Friday, November 9th as we raise funds and awareness in support of Hudson River Housing's programs for the homeless. Gather with us for dinner, a silent auction, and an evening of inspiration as we work together to meet the needs of those less fortunate in our community. The Wind Chill Dinner serves as the kick off to a month of building awareness about homelessness, as we commemorate the start of Homelessness Awareness Month and the impending winter season. 

This year we are thrilled to welcome Becca Stevens as our Keynote Speaker. Becca Stevens is an author, speaker, social justice entrepreneur, and priest. She is the founder and president of Thistle Farms, a movement dedicated to supporting women survivors of trafficking, prostitution, and addiction. Becca has been named a White House "Champion of Change", a 2016 CNN Hero, and has been featured in the New York Times, on ABC World News and NPR.  Her newest book, Love Heals, was published by Harper Collins in September of 2017.

As Hudson River Housing looks for new ways to help those we serve build sustainable livelihoods through new employment opportunities (which will be announced in greater detail at the event), Becca Stevens and Thistle Farms serve as an inspiration.
