On April 25, Connections for the Homeless hosted its annual spring gala and 30th anniversary wrap-up, raising more than $230,000 to support its programs and operations.

During the gala, Connections recognized former Executive Director Paul Selden for transforming the agency into a Housing First service provider and welcomed John Pfeiffer, the new Executive Director.

“Since 1984, Connections has been a lifeline to individuals and families facing homelessness. The agency now assists more than 1,000 people each year, and I look forward to building on Connections’ momentum and increasing our impact in the years ahead,” said Mr. Pfeiffer.

This year’s gala wrapped up Connections’ year of 30th anniversary activities.
