About Skid Row Housing Trust
Skid Row Housing Trust provides permanent supportive housing so that people who have experienced homelessness, prolonged extreme poverty, poor health, disabilities, mental illness and/or addiction can lead safe, stable lives in wellness.
Skid Row Housing Trust partners with the community to develop and operate permanent supportive housing so that crises in an individual’s life lead to no more than brief periods of instability. As advocates for innovative solutions to homelessness, the Trust pioneers permanent supportive housing design and programming based on strategies proven to be the most effective.
To date, the Trust has developed 26 projects, creating more than 1,800 safe and healthy homes.
Walk-up registrations are welcome! We hope to see you there, mates!
If you would like to support this fund raising tradition, you may donate a silent auction item to the 2016 Psomas Paper Yacht Challenge. The silent auction is the main fundraising tool for this event.
The auction will be hosted at: www.32auctions.com/ppyc_skidrowhousingtrust. All of the money raised goes directly to the beneficiary, Skid Row Housing Trust.
What a wonderful way to give back to your community and garner some publicity as well. We offer four sponsorship levels.
Costumes are fun!
There will be awards for the best nautical costume. Come dressed up as a sailor, pirate, fetching wench, navy officer, marooned island survivor, or ??? Bring the kids!
Our “open” competition is a separate race for boats which do not fit the “paper only” criteria. Please see the rules for specifics.
