According to Housing Crisis Center’s 2016 Patriot Party Chair John Baer,
Get ready for A Veteran’s Day To Remember. That is the theme of this year’s Housing Crisis Center’s annual Patriot Party on Friday, November 11, at the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek. Proceeds from the event assist with our mission to prevent homelessness and to stabilize those at risk in decent, affordable and permanent housing.
Joining us in this exciting a project are community leaders Lynn and Allan McBee who are serving as Honorary Chairmen. This duo, along with our board of directors and host committee are working diligently to recruit sponsors, underwriters and individual ticket purchasers to make this year’s event a huge success. The evening’s festivities include cocktails, live and silent auctions, live music and dancing in the Mansion’s recently renovated Ballroom and adjoining Pavilion.
As we embark on this important fund-raising effort, it is worth noting that HCC’s three permanent housing programs serve mainly veterans and their families. The Patriot Party is one of the ways we honor and support those who have served. Veterans in our program suffer disabilities, but with our help, they are able to live independently.
We don’t stop with making sure they have a safe place to live, we also give them the tools they need to find jobs, manage their finances and to tackle the issues that cause them to become homeless. We invite you to join our efforts to ensure that our veterans have a brighter future.
Housing Crisis Center has been preventing homelessness for almost 40 years. More than 10,000 households rely on our assistance each year. Originally founded as the Dallas Tenants Association in 1978 under the leadership of Dorothy Masterson, the organization was established to provide free legal support to low income tenants. Our mission and reach have expanded and the demand for our services in Dallas is greater than ever.
