Drives & In-Kind Support Drives + In-Kind Support

The people we serve want to focus on their futures, but it’s hard to move forward without basic necessities. You can help the individuals and families in our programs by purchasing much-needed items. You can support our work with those who are currently homeless by providing items for our Mobile Prevention Team to distribute on the streets. And don’t forget our programs! Your in-kind donations can help offset costs and will allow our staff to focus on providing professional, compassionate support.
