Your Donations Make a Difference
Many of our residents arrive with little or no personal belongings. With the generous support of our local community, program participants can begin to rebuild their lives and homes upon move-in. Throughout their stay, families can obtain essential items from the Donation Center at no cost.
All items that participants acquire are theirs to take when they leave the program.
