Help-a-Kid No-Ball 2023

The children at Transition House are dressing up, so you don’t have to! The Annual Help-a-Kid No-Ball directly supports people, not parties.

All No-Ball proceeds go directly to helping children living at Transition House’s emergency family shelter.

Instead of using your donation to throw a big party, we are selling tickets to an event you don’t have to attend.

Four ways you can CHANGE the lives of homeless children

Buy a No-Ball “Ticket” $150

Why buy a $150 ticket to an event that won’t take place?

  • Your giving goes to helping children—not putting on a party.
  • You will make a significant impact on the lives of homeless children—now, and in the future.
  • You will help make your community a better place to live—for everyone.

Become a Patron with a Ticket of $350

Patrons are special No-Ball donors who give an extra level of support for the kids staying in our emergency homeless shelter.

Many of our Patrons show their dedication year after year to ensure our shelter and programs are there for any child in our local community who may need them.

Sponsor a Child at $1,000

It costs about $1,000 for a child to live at our shelter for three months. By sponsoring a child during their stay, you will help them grow up healthy, self-confident, and successful.

Your donations provides:

  • A safe place to sleep in a private room with all family members
  • Three healthy meals a day
  • Tutoring and daily literacy program
  • College-focused mentoring for teens
  • Sliding scale licensed infant care
  • Regular kid stuff like birthday parties, Christmas presents, and trips to the zoo!

Did you know that our children’s program serves more than 200 kids each year?

Over sixty percent of the shelter clients we serve are under the age of 18, therefore addressing the needs of these young people is essential. Every dollar raised from No-Ball goes to where it is needed most—to support programs for homeless children living at Transition House.
