Upward Bound House has established an extraordinary record of success in addressing family homelessness. Since their inception, they have helped more than 1,800 families including over 3,200 children to transition from homelessness and into permanent housing. Over 95% of these families were still in their homes more than a year after placement.  This event is one of their biggest fundraisers.  Click image to join the FUM church and preschool team.
