of the Breach (1335 W. Vliet St.) was founded in 1991 as a grassroots daytime
homeless center that now offers more than 40 free services and resources while
providing a safe refuge and positive atmosphere for those living on the
streets. The center is open from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday and
on all major holidays. After the recession hit, Elizabeth D’Acquisto, owner of
Saloné (925 E. Ogden Ave.), decided she wanted to give back to those less
fortunate and was led to Repairers of the Breach. Since 2009, D’Acquisto has
organized three large fundraising events and this year, in lieu of an event,
she is sending out a heartfelt letter to friends, family and supporters, asking
each to make a $50 donation to the nonprofit in honor of her 50th birthday.
D’Acquisto is personally giving $500 to the cause this year and hopes that the
community will stand behind her once again to help raise thousands of dollars
for this deserving center.
community has been very supportive and interested in helping, and this
fundraiser, Rebuilding Dreams, is an effort to help assist the homeless and
create awareness,” says D’Acquisto. “I ask that everyone continues to support
Repairers of the Breach as often as they can.”
