The annual gala is Family HomeStead’s signature fundraiser and includes cocktails, live and silent auctions, and music by the Annie Booth Quartet.  Beginning 21 years ago as a small dinner in someone’s home, “For the Love of Family” has grown in size and dollars raised to support Family HomeStead’s programs of emergency and transitional housing for homeless families with children. …

Adopt-A-Family for the Holidays 2014 a Tremendous Success

Adopt-a-Family for the Holidays is a Secret Santa project designed to supply the holiday needs of our client families while enabling the children to see their parents as the givers of gifts rather than as the recipients of charity.  Donors shop for families according to a wish list supplied by parents and deliver the gift items to the Family HomeStead office for families to pick up.  Some parents bring their children with them to pick up the gifts.  Others go to great lengths to keep the gifts a secret.

A Fun Day at the LoDo Loft Tour

October 6th was a great day to be in LoDo. It was a beautiful Colorado Fall day and the HomeSteaders 6th Annual LoDo Loft Tour was in full swing. Attendees enjoyed the fine weather as they toured the five beautiful historic and contemporary loft homes.

As always, the HomeSteaders auxiliary put on a great event. Family HomeStead couldn’t pursue our mission without all the wonderful volunteers who made this event a reality — and without the loft owners who so generously opened their homes to us for the day.

A big thanks to everyone who attended and for those who gave donations in support of the event!
