To remember that every human life is valuable.

LHR is run by volunteers who work tirelessly to devote their time to those in need. This September, please support Aloha Kiss in raising funds, awareness and supplies for the Livermore Homeless Refuge by participating in a fundraising golf tournament that will help the LHR continue their wonderful program reaching out to the homeless of Livermore.
