About This Activity

Our 3rd Annual Sole Harvest 5K Run/1M Walk benefits the Norristown Hospitality Center. 

For over 22 years, the Norristown Hospitality Center has, and continues to be a place of hope and support for so many experiencing homelessness and low income in Montgomery County. Whether they are ill, unemployed, or part of the working poor, the underprivileged can receive many services provided six days a week. All proceeds from the race goes directly to the day-to-day operations of the left.

Each day we have between 85 and 122 people sign in to use services including: crisis intervention, breakfast, hot showers, mail services, addiction counseling, lockers, emergency food baskets and referrals, with the goal helping them to achieve independence. 

Below are a few more facts about how we serve the county:

o   We are the only ministry in Norristown that provides breakfast 6 days a week. ​In fiscal year (July 14, 2014-June 15, 2015) we served  20,003 breakfasts and the Shelter was accessed was 26,925 times.  Both men and women are served equally (50% each), and most clients are adults from 18-64 years old. The racial/ethnic makeup of clients is 48% African American, 46% Caucasian, 5% Hispanic, and 1% Asian/Pacific Islander. 

o   We provide social services and addictions counseling free and without an appointment to the community 6 days every week. In a day our staff and volunteers may see about 87 people on average who are seeking shelter or services at the Center. Services include: showers, phone, fax, copies, mail contracts (if they don't have their own address), toiletries and food baskets, lockers, optional devotions, counseling.

​​Please register for the 3rd Annual "Sole Harvest" 5K Run/Walk where all proceeds will go directly to serving those facing hardship.
