Based on the direction of the Mayors’ Commission on Homelessness and Affordable Housing, funds from the Homeless to Hope Fund will also be used to help assist in the operations of the new All of Us Resource Center, a day center designed to help people experiencing homelessness to find the programs and support they need from local service providers and health partners to create a path for self-sufficiency while accessing such basic needs as showers and laundry facilities during their time of transition.

Q: Didn’t the benefit concert cost money to produce? A: The majority of the people and places involved have either donated their time or provided services for a fraction of the costs. All costs are sponsored to ensure 100 percent of the benefit concert proceeds could be used to support the Homeless to Hope Fund.
