Anawim Housing, in partnership with the Polk County Continuum of Care, will host an inaugural “Rising Toward Community” event on the summer solstice on June 21 – the first day of summer and the longest day of the year. The event is a celebration of overcoming homelessness and connecting to community. This is an opportunity to highlight the stories of those who have overcome homelessness, highlight the positive changes that occur in the community and in people’s lives when people are housed, and affirm the people and agencies working to end homelessness. Des Moines Mayor Frank Cownie and state Sen. Claire Celsi will speak, as well as other community partners and individuals who have experienced homelessness. The event is open to the community, and lunch will be provided. For more information click here.
