Thank you to all of our sponsors, walkers, and volunteers for making
 "A Mile in Her Shoes" such a great success!!!


Ruth's Place is the only emergency shelter for homeless women in Luzerne County. A program of Volunteers of America of Pennsylvania, Ruth's Place has provided emergency shelter and services for over 1,500 homeless women since its beginning in 2003. This program needs your help to continue giving women the assistance they need to find permanent housing.  See the links at left to learn more about Ruth's Place and how you can join us!
