What

Non-cash donations (goods and services) are central to providing our mission. Coming from homelessness and poverty, our clients need many things to rebuild their lives. Most of these items are not available through the food stamp program.

Any individual, business, group, or organization interested in collecting needed items for our clients may refer to our Amazon Wish List as well as the list of items provided below.  Items with an asterisk(*) are those requested most often. 

Due to limited storage, any group supply drives need to be coordinated with the Chief Program Officer. See the box to the right for contact information.

Every November/December, we sponsor a Holiday Adopt-A-Resident Program. Clients list specific items they need. Check back in November for the link to this special once-a-year program.
