Miracles Outreach is proud to announce the 2nd Annual “From Runaway to the Runway Fall Fashion Gala” was a great success. We want to thank our sponsors and all who attended.

Goal Headline

Proceeds from this highly anticipated event will directly benefit Miracles Outreach programs. Each dollar will go to improving the lives of abused, at-risk, foster care and exploited youth of Human Trafficking which currently live in our housing facilities. The Fashion Show participants from our organization are all turning 18 and are in the process of transitioning out of Miracles Outreach housing.
For those who are leaving Miracle Outreach; this is their PROM! Many of them have had to grow up too quickly because they have had unfortunate childhoods and have missed out on many rights of passage that most teenagers take for granted. The Fashion Show gives them the opportunity to have their hair done, make-up perfected, wear designer clothes and attend an event where people support their perseverance.
The purpose of this event is raise awareness about Runaways who have made their way to the Runway. It also gives local decision makers an opportunity to meet amazing children who have risen above their often troublesome circumstances to find a sense of joy.
