Join us as p:ear turns 16 years old. We will be celebrating the Rites of Passage that our community’s homeless young people go through as they navigate into a healthier young adulthood. But also their Rights of Passage—what is it that they have the right to claim as they grow? We believe that they can claim Love, Trust and Hope.
Since 2002, p:ear has helped youth strive for more than just surviving; giving youth the opportunity to grow and be a part of a healthier community — for everyone.
On Saturday April 21, 2018, 330+ people will gather together to enjoy a gourmet wine dinner, performances, and a stunning live auction. We look forward to seeing you there!
