Help-a-Kid No-Ball 2021

Instead of using your donation to throw a big party, we are selling tickets to an event you don’t have to attend, while the children at Transition House are dressing up so you don’t have to!

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


How does Help-a-Kid No-Ball work?

The Annual Help-a-Kid No-Ball is a non-event fundraiser. We save our “guests” and our agency both time and money by not going through the significant work of hosting an extravagant event.

This year the kids are staying safe and staying in!

Safe families, safe selves. At Transition House, we believe the well-being of one family is connected to the well-being of all families in our community. As we keep our clients moving forward with their goal of returning to permanent housing, we are doing so under the mantra of “Safe families, safe selves.” The children in our shelter continue to be good listeners and good helpers in maintaining social distance and practicing healthy habits to keep each other safe.

Three ways you can CHANGE the lives of children at Transition House

Buy a Ticket for $150. Why buy a $150 ticket to an event that won’t take place? Because the value of your non-event ticket goes directly towards supporting our children’s programs, and raises funds to help hundreds of homeless children each year.

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 at Transition House, you will help them to break the cycle of homelessness and thrive as young members of our community!
