Yokefellow Observes National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week

LENOIR, NC (November 9, 2017)…National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week (HHAW) is held each year the week before Thanksgiving. Caldwell County Yokefellow invites all county residents to take this time to think about what we are thankful for, a perfect time to share our compassion with our neighbors who are experiencing homelessness, and work toward a world where no one has to experience hunger or homelessness.

To increase the understanding and awareness of Hunger and Homelessness in Caldwell County, Yokefellow is sponsoring two Open House events Sunday, November 19th, 2:00-4:00pm at LEOS (Lenoir Emergency Outreach Shelter) located at 1129 West Avenue in downtown Lenoir AND at Caldwell County Yokefellow located at 1602 Harper Avenue.  Both buildings will be open for visitors to tour, see the operations of both locations up close, and have meaningful conversations with agency staff and volunteers available that afternoon.

Yokefellow firmly believes all citizens have real political power to add to the struggle to end homelessness and the power to educate your community members and area politicians. Together, we can help to change the conversation about stereotypes, improve policy, help service providers, and so much more.

Please join us Sunday afternoon, November 19th for a tour or LEOS, Caldwell County’s emergency shelter, and then drive down Harper Avenue to Yokefellow for a full building tour there.
