Hope for the Homeless
"Hope for the Homeless - A Celebration of Catholic Charities Housing" - a reception to benefit Catholic Charities Housing Office was held on Monday November 3, 2008 at Franklin Terrace.
Partners in Hope Award - The Bette Companies
This year Matt, Kevin, Chris, Peter, and Mark Bette, as well as their sister Ann Marie Parker of the Bette Family of Companies were honored for their outstanding support of Catholic Charities Housing programs.
The Bette family has provided record sponsorship of CCHO’s Hope for the Homeless year after year. Their support has further extended to heart-warming gifts during the holidays such as warm blankets and sheets to formerly homeless men and women in CCHO-managed Single Room Occupancy (SRO) residences.
We are elated to acknowledge and celebrate the
commitment and generous support of the Bette family!
