Since 2001, Good Works has sponsored an event to educate adults and children of all ages about the struggle and challenges of people who experience homelessness and poverty in rural southeastern Ohio. The WALK is also intended to generate financial support for the Good Works Timothy House, the only home for people who are without a home in 8 southeast Ohio counties.

The Good Works WALK is educational and inspirational. This year, four different experiences are planned to creatively inspire and inform participants of all ages about the problems people without homes face and issues of poverty in rural Appalachian Ohio; and to say to people struggling with poverty, “You are not alone.”
What?– An educational and inspirational WALK experience focusing on helping adults and children of all ages to better understand poverty and homelessness in Appalachian Ohio.
When?– Saturday, February 20, 2016 from 8:30am to 1:00pm.
Where?– The WALK starts and ends at First United Methodist Church (2 South College St., Athens, OH)
Why?– To raise awareness about the issues of poverty and homelessness in Appalachia, Ohio; and raise money for the Good Works Timothy House, the only shelter assisting people who experience homelessness in 8 rural southeast Ohio counties.
How?– Through the participation and donations of people like YOU!. Together, we can provide tangible hope and support to people who are feeling hopeless and in need of shelter. Can you help by spreading the word?
