We have been racking our brains on how to get creative with fundraising and not put too much pressure on our local businesses that have already been tremendously impacted during these times. A major goal for HomeStart is to help foster concrete leadership skills, create space for people to connect with each other and increase their sense of being leaders of change. It all starts with a conversation.
 
How often do we get to see the leaders in our community outside of their regular 9 to 5? Not too many right? That’s why we are promoting conversations with city leaders in a more relaxed setting. It's time to let your hair down and have some fun for a good cause. What makes a good conversation better? Food - A $75 Gift Card to a restaurant of the leaders choice will be given to each participant. Check out the descriptions by clicking the link below. Due to COVID19 restrictions, there is no set date/time that this meeting has to occur.
