I participated in the three-day pledge hike first time this year in July to raise money for the Elizabeth Stone House. It was a very well organized event that I felt proud of being a part of it. Every penny raised will go to support residents of ESH that I believe has been vital for the community to help support women and their families who had experienced hardship in their lives. I will continue to support ESH in its great effort to help support women to regain control of their lives.
I have been volunteering with this org for over two years - the staff and mission are exemplary. I'm thoroughly impressed with the efforts, results, and momentum.
The work of the Elizabeth Stone House reflects their deeply held values of believing that all people deserve respect, support, and hope on their life journeys towards healing after experiencing homelessness. Their programs both within their shelter, and in the community they serve, have mitigated the effects of violence and trauma experience by women and their children. Through their connection to the Elizabeth Stone House staff and other members of the ESH community they have restored their confidence, moved towards self-sufficiency, and found resiliency in themselves and their community. For the past 12 years I have hiked with Wilderness Heals to raise money to support their programming. I come back to hike each year because I believe in their values, programs, and to support their work with women, children and families.
I have been hiking to raise money for the Elizabeth Stone House through Wilderness Heals for 6 years. 4 of those years I have volunteered my time to be a team leader for the 3-day pledge hike. I have visited their facilities and spoken with people in the community the Stone House has provided services to. Whether the services are residential or non-residential programs, ESH clients are able to heal and grow so that they can reclaim control over their lives.
No group works harder, cares more deeply or spends money more wisely and carefully. Their work changes lives for women and families by breaking the cycle of homelessness caused by many difficulties. I've participated in their Wilderness Heals hiking fundraiser for five years, proudly raising money for their honorable and beneficial efforts. They're the best!
ESH supports women in gaining their independence and building strong families. A unique and successful approach
I've raised funds for the Elizabeth Stone House by participating on the Wilderness Heals hike for the past 3 summers. And I've served on the ESH Board of Directors for 1 year. The organization provides life-saving services to women and their children, and also provides programs and support to over 800 people in the community each year. It is a most exciting time for the ESH -- a new facility will eventually be built a few blocks from the current site, that will dramatically increase the programs that ESH can offer.
I am proud to be affiliated with the Elizabeth Stone House. Employees of the ESH are some of the most dedicated, professional, and caring people I've had the pleasure to meet. They are helping women change their lives, gain independence, and raise healthy, happy families.
The Elizabeth Stone House is a small but powerful non-profit. I started by hiking with Wilderness Heals as a way to support a small charity, but their support of volunteers is very impressive, and that's why i keep hiking.
The morning of the hike one of the recipients of the ESH speaks to the hikers. Each time it is a moving experience that leaves everyone in tears.
Wilderness Heals isn't a big event, and because of that i feel i am making a real difference in someone's life.
As a participant of the fundraising hike, Wilderness Heals, I have seen the hard work of the Elizabeth Stone House over the years and they are truly amazing. I dedicate every summer to raising funds because they do such amazing work and really help individuals and families get back on their feet. The organization provides such great assurance and really fits it to their client's needs.
I have been involved with Elizabeth Stone House's pledge hike, Wilderness Heals, for over five years and can't imagine my life without it. They help so many people in need and have even helped me to become the person I am today. They truly are angels.
ESH is a great organization that I have enjoyed working with at various events over the years. The staff are truly committed and driven to help the residents and their mission. You can see the impact the ESH has on their residents and the community. The ESH is an amazing NFP that deserves to be recognized for all they do!
