Nicholas House, an Atlanta-based nonprofit that aims to help homeless families become self-sufficient, will host its annual New Beginnings Luncheon March 27 at 11:30 a.m. at The Four Seasons in Midtown.

The event will honor a Nicholas House graduate and the efforts of entrepreneurs Arion Simone and Keshia Knight Pulliam, founding partners of The Fearless Fund, a venture capital fund for women business owners; Jasmine Crowe, founder & CEO of Goodr Inc., a food waste management company; and Dr. April Spencer, health advocate and founder of Global Breast Health & Wellness Center.

Monica Pearson, a former WSB-TV anchor and current 104.1 FM radio personality, will give the keynote address. WSB-TV anchor Sophia Choi is the mistress of ceremonies, and R&B artist Kelly Price will perform.

The luncheon will feature the new beginnings of formerly homeless women and others that have changed the trajectory for women in a major way, while also raising awareness of family homelessness and the programs Nicholas House offers to help stop homelessness.
