National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week

November 11 - 19 2017

National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week is held each year the week before Thanksgiving. As you prepare to gather with your family and friends, we ask that you think about our neighbors who are experiencing homelessness and join us as we work toward a community where no one has to experience hunger and homelessness.

We have several outreach events planned that week. Click here to visit our calendar

This year Hunger & Homelessness Week will focus on local and national laws that affect people who are experiencing homelessness. Join us in this national movement and let's Bring America Home together!


5th Annual Mayor's Ball

We invite you to "Be the Change" you want to see in our community in 2018 by joining us for a distinguished, inspiring, black tie evening at the Palm Beach County Convention Center, in West Palm Beach. This year's gala theme will encourage each person to become an integral part of making a difference in the lives of our homeless neighbors. This event attracts more than 500 attendees from various segments of our community including business, politics, philanthropy, and faith.
Since its inception, the Mayor's Ball has netted more than $1 million for homeless services in our community. This success has allowed The Homeless Coalition's Creating Housing Opportunities program to positively impact nearly 1,000 men, women, and children by moving them into permanent housing. 
Thank You to Our Ongoing Corporate Sponsors!
