2018 Mission Possible Celebration Recap
Last Monday, April 23rd, over 300 friends, partners, and supporters of MK gathered at the US Chamber of Commerce for the Mission Possible Celebration. We honored Sam Ross, member of the MK Speakers Bureau and former guest, for his dedication to helping others who are experiencing homelessness. We also honored Senator Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) and Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) for their leadership in the work to end veteran and chronic homelessness in their states and across the nation.
With about 285 veterans and 1,470 individuals experiencing chronic homelessness still living on the streets in DC, we must continue to work diligently towards a day where every man and woman can have a safe and stable home.
Thank you to all of our guests, staff, volunteer, partners, and supporters that came out to celebrate with us. A tremendous shout out to our amazing sponsors and host committee for their support in helping us make this celebration possible:
