MAE'S GALA IS BACK!
This year, funds raised will be even more impactful—after a year of our community dealing with COVID-19 many more people are now experiencing homelessness and facing the potential of being at risk of homelessness. Our cause is more important now than it ever has been before.
All funds raised this year will be distributed to the Wellness Center we recently opened in Cranston, RI. At this Wellness Center, we look forward to being able to provide incredibly necessary mental health programs, as well as programs to assist those suffering from drug and opioid addiction—unfortunately, the figures of individuals suffering from the debilitating disease of opioid addiction have been on the rise since the onset of the pandemic, as well. Through our services, clients will have access to support, counseling, individual and group holistic therapies. Here, clients will also be able to access a pop-up shop where they can get clothing and toiletries—and, in the future, we hope to be able to provide free monthly haircuts for all clients.
Get your friends and join us! This year, we will be at the Crowne Plaza Providence-Warwick (Airport). Don’t worry about the drive home—just book a room for a discounted rate and spend the whole weekend partying! Times are tough. We totally get it.
