Community 50/50 is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing food, clothing, shelter, education and mental health services to citizens of Richmond, Virginia who are in need. We create engaging, community-based programs for children, adults and families.
Shawnee Hansen, the Richmond Friends of the Homeless founder, values her partnership with Community 50/50 because her group cannot do it alone.
“So many people just do a little bit, but when it all adds up it’s a really big thing,” Hansen says about the volunteers from Community 50/50 and other groups who make the feeding program possible.
Adds founder Zenobia Bey about the opportunities for outreach Community 50/50 provides, “A lot of times people want to help, and a lot of times people just don’t know how to help.”
