Anchored in Dignity

Join us as we gather together to celebrate the successes of the adults and families we serve.

At Carpenter’s Place, success is measured by lives changed. During our 22 years of service, literally thousands of homeless adults have secured employment and housing, and achieved a multitude of other life-changing milestones.

At our celebration, to demonstrate these successes, personal stories of success will be shared. And, to acknowledge our gratitude for the collaboration and support of others to achieve these results the following Partners in Success will be honored:

Benefactor Award » John (Posthumously) and Susan Whitcher
Moving Mountains Award » George Ralph
Helping Hands Award » RPM Contracting LLC
Angel Award » Patty Powers
Team of Excellence Award » Grassroots Church

Please join us to celebrate 22 years of service and success, changed lives, and the extraordinary partners who helped make the success of our guests possible.
