Columbus House’s mission is to serve people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless by providing shelter and housing and by fostering their personal growth and independence.
Hershel, a Vietnam Veteran, was homeless for seven years. Thanks to your caring support, he was able to stay at Harkness House, one of Columbus House's programs for Veterans. Proudly, he has been in his own home for over a year, and remains connected to the support system Columbus House provides so he does not slip back into homelessness. Watch Hershel's inspirational speech at our 2017 Annual Meeting!
