With the variant surges slowly fading, the small business community is increasingly optimistic about 2022.  This is also a time of hope for individuals that have been struggling with homelessness during the pandemic.  The Small Business Advocacy Council and A Safe Haven have once again joined forces on a fundraising effort to support the homeless population and advocate for the small business community.

---

Why would these 2 powerful advocates for the small business community and the homeless partner for this challenge?  It's simple.

  • Small businesses are struggling to find employees. The SBAC has legislation pending to get people back to work. A Safe Haven places formerly homeless individuals into jobs with small businesses. By supporting both organizations, you can help bring people back into the workforce.
  • Providing support to an organization that reduces homelessness in communities will improve the perception of local business districts and that, in turn, can increase the customer base for small businesses.
  • Providing support to an organization committed to improving the landscape for small business owners can, in effort, reduce the number of unemployed workers in communities.
  • You can support the SBAC and A Safe Haven at the same time!

The SBAC is a non-partisan, member driven organization that promotes the success of small business through political advocacy, support services and educational programs. We believe the success of small business is a critical component of the nation’s economic well-being. In order to ensure a fair and level playing field, small business must have a powerful and united advocacy voice at the local, state and federal level. Through cooperative networking, idea sharing and education, small business can flourish.

A Safe Haven Foundation is a 501(c)3 not for profit, social enterprise that helps people ASPIRE. TRANSFORM. and SUSTAIN­® their lives as they transition from homelessness to self-sufficiency with pride and purpose. A Safe Haven provides the tools for each individual to overcome the root causes of homelessness through a holistic and scalable model. A Safe Haven's visible social and economic impact unites families, stabilizes neighborhoods, and creates vibrant, viable communities.
