Contrary to popular opinion, the shortest day of the year in 2022 is not Christmas Day, but Wednesday, December 21st. That means your Christmas Day—and ours at Providence Network—will be just a little bit brighter this year, a little more full of sunshine.

For many people experiencing homelessness, winter is a time of bitter cold and long nights. Past trauma and broken relationships can make the holidays even harder. Our staff have the important work of supporting our residents through this time in both emotional and practical ways. It’s a gift we can’t offer without partners like you.

There’s a well-known tradition in our homes that we affectionately call “mandatory fun.” These activities are an opportunity to celebrate the new beginnings our residents are carving out for themselves and their families. They’re the moments when we catch a glimpse of the sunshine. Take a look!

Our Providence House community visited Tree Town Wonderland to choose the perfect Christmas tree for their home (and pause for some silly photos, of course)

In this 60-second clip, PN board member, Kim Bolt, joins the fun, helping several of our residents and staff “deck the halls” at Silver Lining House!

For so many of our homeless neighbors, every day feels like the darkest day of the year. But here at Providence Network, that’s slowly changing—one life at a time.

Would you partner with us this season by giving financially? Help make Christmas renewal possible.
