The Westside Shelter & Hunger Coalition will hold its 16th annual Celebrating Success Breakfast from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. Friday, Oct. 28 at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel, 101 Wilshire Blvd., Santa Monica.

The event will honor 23 formerly homeless individuals who, with the support of local nonprofit agencies, have made extraordinary transitions from homelessness to lives filled with passion and promise, according to the coalition.

In addition, the ceremony will honor 13 local businesses, organizations, and individuals who have dedicated significant resources to supporting the member agencies of the Westside Shelter & Hunger Coalition. Whole Foods Market will receive the coalition’s 2011 Partnership Award.

The Westside Shelter & Hunger Coalition is a group of over 30 social service providers, faith congregations and supporting organizations committed to ending homelessness through service coordination, public education and advocacy.

Coalition members work together to provide a continuum of care for homeless, low-income individuals and their families by serving their needs in a cost effective and cooperative manner.
