On Thursday, November 30, 2023, the team of the Mike Brown Group, the Together We Give board members, and the CATCH staff came together to celebrate another year of working hard to resolve homelessness in Idaho.
This is the third year Mike Brown, owner and team leader of the Mike Brown Group and co-founder of Together We Give, has had the honor of presenting a check to CATCH. Through the genuinely caring team of agents, staff, and clients of the Mike Brown Group, this year’s donation was in the amount of $50,000.
With a packed room filled with excitement and hope, everyone gathered as Mike Brown shared his thoughts on the efforts given and the stark reality of what homeless people experience- he said, “In 2023, on a single night in just Ada County, almost 700 people were literally without a home. 217 of which were 55 and older, 43 were children, and 109 were veterans. These numbers are more than a statistic; they are the people within our community who don’t know where they will sleep, night after night. They are the people we have gathered for today.”
“We all believe that every Idahoan has the basic human right to warmth, safety, and shelter. In the three years we have partnered with CATCH, Together We Give has donated $210,000 towards the effort to resolve homelessness.”
Together We Give and the Mike Brown Group are committed to doing their part to work towards a future where every Idahoan has a place to call home.
