The Community Partnership for the Homeless reached a milestone on Thursday and promptly set their sights on another.
The nonprofit agency that operates the Homeless Assistance Center in Overtown announced $2 million in pledges from five major donors at its monthly board meeting. The new contributions pushed the partnership past its $13.6 million fundraising goal to $14 million. Partnership board chairman Alvah Chapman then raised the bar again, setting a new fundraising goal of $16.5 million. The proceeds will help pay for construction and operating costs at the partnership's second Homeless Assistance Center planned for Homestead.
