Donation Drive for Critically Needed Items: Organize a drive at your work, school, or organization. These drives benefit our emergency shelters and transitional programs. Please see below for our wish list or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Recreational or Health-focused Activities: Lead fun activities in our shelters. Activities can include sing-a-longs, Bingo, board games, walking groups, etc.
Life Skills and Support Groups: Provide groups or services in our shelters and transitional programs. Groups can include educational groups, spirituality-based services, or support groups. Topics could include self-esteem building, meditation, or goal-setting.
Tutoring: Tutor guests in reading, math, GED Prep, computer literacy, and budgeting.
Make Housewarming Baskets for people moving out of the shelters and unsafe outdoor spaces into safe, stable housing. Because all are experiencing homeless, they don't have anything to get started in their new apartments and their new futures, and need a little help getting set up. Items don't need to be expensive. You can read more about it here.
Community Meals Program: Serve and/or sponsor dinner for the hundreds of emergency shelter guests at our shelters.
Painting and/or Cleaning Projects: Help create a welcoming setting for our emergency shelters and transitional programs.
