JANESVILLE, Wisconsin—Mercyhealth Development Foundation is pleased to announce its 2018 Charity Ball event to benefit the House of Mercy Homeless Center is slated for Saturday, June 9, at the Janesville County Club, 2615 W. Memorial Dr., Janesville.

Cost is $100 per person.
The House of Mercy Homeless Center is a 25-bed homeless center that provides homeless families with short-term emergency shelter and access to housing, job placement and child care resources. Since opening in 1996, the Center has provided shelter and support to over 6,000 individuals, half of whom were children. Almost every day, the Center’s 25-bed capacity is filled—but with the generous support of our community, the doors to the House of Mercy will continue to remain open, helping those in need. The donations received from our donors, community members and business corporations help the House of Mercy Homeless Center address the root causes of homelessness in our area.
Money raised from this night will provide homeless families with individualized success planning, rent deposits, education expense assistance, transportation, child care assistance and other needs. For more information, contact Renee Dooman at (608) 741-2422 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
