Thank you all who came out and supported our mission and vision.

Together, we raised over $23,000!

Keynote Speaker Evie Lastra West took guests on a journey of laughter and tears as she shared her personal story of redemption and grace. A former LA gang member, two-time teen mom and now, City of Cleveland police officer, her raw honesty touched many in the room.


A great supporter of Foundation House, Yaunna Higgins, former director of New Hope Pregnancy Care Center, shared briefly about the need for a ministry like Foundation House from the perspective of the crisis pregnancy center. There are no good options for housing and support for many of these young women. Foundation House meets a definite need in Cleveland.


Harry Hickey, Board Treasurer, closed out the night with prayer and gratitude to all of our guests.
