On Saturday, March 25, 2017, we will hold our annual “Stairway to Our Future” event at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel. Launched in May 2010, Stairway to Our Future is an annual event held to support the much needed services that Drueding Center provides. A night of music, dancing, silent auction and making a difference in the lives of homeless women and children, this event is held to support the much needed services that Drueding Center provides to its families.
Drueding Center is celebrating 30 years of many achievements while continually striving to better meet the needs of the homeless women and children we serve. We are most proud that Drueding Center, a transitional housing program for homeless women and their children, continues to break the relentless cycle of poverty among the most vulnerable homeless families by creating two generations of self-reliant adults.
While the demands for our services remain constant, public and private funding of our programs continue to be a challenge. To address this continuing financial need, we have established our annual signature fundraising event, Stairway to Our Future. With over 300 guests for cocktails and dinner on this special night, we will honor and celebrate all of the good that Drueding continues to do for the women and children that we have the privilege to serve.
As Philadelphia’s first transitional housing program for homeless women and children, Drueding Center has developed a comprehensive program that meets the needs of both generations of our young families. We acknowledge that healing takes time, and preserve our families’ achievements through an extensive After Care program, forever breaking the cycle of poverty and homelessness. We are proud to report that we are a program that works.
With the help of our many generous sponsors, our event continues to help end the cycle of poverty and homelessness faced by our mothers and their young children.
