The Home Sweet Home Campaign for Affordable Housing in The West End


Seven Hills Neighborhood Houses has started the Home Sweet Home Campaign to raise awareness and funds for affordable housing in the West End. The FCC community will be moving there in just a couple of years, and Die Innenstadt believes that affordable housing in the neighborhood is an important effort to get behind.

There are three events going on between August 29th-31st, 2019. All of the profits from these events will be going directly to affordable housing projects in the West End.

The first event is a local celebrity slow pitch softball game, which will be held on August 29th at 7pm.

The second event will be the Homecoming dance on Friday, August 30th from 7-11pm, and will be a ticketed event with a couple bands, drinks, and light appetizers.

The third event will be the HomeRUN 5k on Saturday, August 31st at 9am. This event will be a 5k run through the West End that will end at the West End Reunion in Wade Street Park. This is where we need your help!


Home Sweet Home is looking for volunteers during the 5k who can…

1. Distribute water along the route.

2. Hold signs along the course to route the participants in the right direction (and cheer them on!)

Sign up here if you are interested and we will get details to you later next week!

Additionally, you can make a donation to Home Sweet Home’s GoFundMe page, here.

Please let us know if you have any questions and we appreciate everyone’s efforts!

Juncta Juvant!
