As 2016 comes to a close, we are so thankful for all of you that have made a difference in the lives of many! In 2016 E49 Corporation celebrated our 7th year anniversary and Suite 210 celebrated its 3rd year! This year, as we focused on uniting churches, businesses, non-profits and civic organizations to solve social issues, we launched the first phase of our “Housing & Hope™” model. Housing & Hope™ addresses the foundational needs of Housing, Mentoring and Employment in the cause areas of Homelessness, Sex Trafficking, Under-served Youth and Poverty. We are very excited to see H&H grow, along with a few other “wins” this year:
