On Thursday, November 18, Homeless Children's Network hosted a Thanksgiving Feast for
San Francisco’s MegaBlack SF and Dream Keeper Initiative Community to celebrate
excellence, resilience, and triumphs. Thanksgiving for the Black Community is to celebrate
and give thanks for the fruits of the previous harvest.

Dr. April Y. Silas, Executive Director of Homeless Children's Network, explained at the event, “We are authoring an opportunity to give thanks for all that has blessed our lives, communities, families, and spirits." Dr. April took a moment to honor community leaders in the room and everyone stood up to be recognized. At that moment, everyone looked at each other and applauded in celebration.
