A Run, A Walk for Hope, A Home in Watsonville – Santa Cruz Sentinel

Pajaro Valley Shelter Services Development Coordinator Judy Sambrailo packs a Mother’s Day Run participant’s goodie bag on Thursday as the South County nonprofit prepares for its 38th Annual Mother’s Day Run and Walk for Hope and Home. Participants pick up their t-shirts, bibs and other items outside the organization’s headquarters on Brennan Street, and can even do so on race morning at Pinto Lake County Park. For those who haven’t registered yet, it’s not too late as registration will also open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday for the event which raises funds to provide shelter and safety to those in need. Founded in 1983, Pajaro Valley Shelter Services provides families with a path to a stable, independent future through short and long-term housing and support services. Families achieve their own success through their commitment to achieving their goals and are supported on their journey to a self-sufficient future by providing knowledge, skills and connections to community resources. The Pajaro Valley Shelter Services website notes that 70% of adults served by the program have exited to permanent housing and 76% to employment.
