Cycle for Shelter

HAVERHILL, MA —The 25th annual Cycle for Shelter will be held Sun., July 28, to raise funds to provide what homeless children and adults need to rebuild their lives - emergency shelter, housing search assistance, affordable housing, adult education and job training and support services. This year more than 3,000 homeless adults and children will seek help from Emmaus as they face homelessness, a crisis that most of us can only imagine in our worst nightmares.

Riding in the Cycle for Shelter is a way to channel physical, mental and emotional energy into something much greater than the accomplishment that is gained by riding 21, 50, 62 or 100 miles. Cycle for Shelter cyclists use their strength, time and energy to help those in need. With each mile, the Cycle for Shelter brings homeless individuals and families closer to fulfilling their dream of finding permanent housing.

Over the past twenty five years, Cycle for Shelter has raised nearly $950,000 for Emmaus.
