KITH | Fighting homelessness, we mean business!

KITH-WMB “Not so very long ago, Richard LeMieux was a successful businessman.  He ran his own publishing company, lived in a house on the beach, drove a cool car, had a loving family. Then, suddenly, it was all gone: his business collapsed, his family left him, he was evicted from his home. He was nearly 60 years old, and he was homeless.” - David Pitt, Booklist Review

Can a successful, hard-working employer understand the impacts of homelessness on a personal level? On a community-wide level? Business leaders have an opportunity to hear firsthand the answers to these and other questions about homelessness in East King County at KITH’s “FIGHTING HOMELESSNESS – WE MEAN BUSINESS” Luncheon, Friday, April 16, 2010 at The Fairfield Inn-Marriott in Bellevue.

Author Richard LeMieux will tell his compelling story and KITH clients will share the practical, life-changing impacts of KITH’s transitional housing and case management programs.

Thanks to the generous support of event sponsors, all proceeds from the luncheon will go directly to support KITH programs to help homeless families. Suggested donation is $100 per ticket. Space is limited. For event information and to register by April 2, visit www.kithcares.org .
