This Golf tournament is scheduled for Wednesday, July 19th, at Cedar Rock Golf Tournament.
The 3rd Annual Charity Golf Tournament benefiting LEOS is important to our community.
LEOS is a year-round, private, faith based emergency homeless shelter serving homeless men, women, children, and intact families in need of shelter. LEOS provides not only housing but a wide range of services to our neighbors of all ages, descriptions and with many, many different needs.
With the implementation of the HEARTH Act in 2012 (Homeless Emergency Assistance and Rapid Transition to Housing) federal definition requires "housing first" or rapid re-housing. If we were to depend upon federal dollars at LEOS, we would be required to shelter our homeless for only 30 days in emergency shelter and then transition them into permanent housing. Caldwell County has a housing shortage, with most apt communities currently responding with 60-90 day waiting lists.
LEOS has one full-time staff member and uses 34 volunteer hours daily to operate, 24-7. LEOS has a sustainable budget and it is our hopes that the community-at-large will continue to be generous as we diligently care for this fragile, vulnerable population.
The Golf Tournament Committee is actively seeking Tournament Players, $50 each - $200 foursomes, and Hole Sponsors at $100 each. The event is the single fund-raising event for our community emergency shelter and YOUR help is needed!
