Sponsor Foundation

Becoming a sponsor of The Chrishaun Foundation is an investment in hope in our community. Our sponsors are our partners in our mission to see every child in a safe and stable home. Your investment infuses innovation and spurs proactive approaches to the persistent issue of family homelessness. It is because of sponsorships like these that Bridge to Home came to life and now houses 6 student-parents with their children working toward a brighter future.

We hope you’ll join us at one of the levels below in support of families experiencing homelessness in our community.
