“This event is extraordinarily important because it highlights the plight of homeless women and children. There is a stereotype in our community that homelessness is only about men, but we have hundreds of homeless women and children in our community,” said Bronwyn Miller. . “This is women helping women. We have the most giving — and stylish, of course — women in our community gathering together to support eradicating homeless women and children.”
At this year’s Take a Walk in Her Shoes Chapman Partnership announced the Trish Bell Lifetime Leadership Award that honors and recognizes an individual in our community who inspires and motivates the people around them to achieve a greater vision of hope and opportunity for those most in need.
