The Arlington Street People’s Assistance Network (A-SPAN) will host its inaugural Coming Home Breakfast on Thursday, April 24 from 7:30 to 9 a.m. at the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association conference center, 4301 Wilson Blvd.

“Having a safe place to come home to is so important for all of us,” A-SPAN executive director Kathleen Sibert said. “Our whole mission is to end homelessness in our community. The look on someone’s face when they receive keys to their own apartment is magical, and demonstrates the importance of having a home.”

John Shooshan, chairman of the Shooshan Co. and a local philanthropist, will be the keynote speaker at the event, which is free and open to the public.
