If you received our recent business letter, please CLICK HERE to make your donation.
ONE TIME DONATION
Your one time gift helps break the cycle of homelessness for a vulnerable family.
$100 can re-enroll a child into school (documents, supplies, uniforms)
$250 can feed and house a family of three for a week
$500 can support a week of our after school program for up to 20 kids
Your monthly donation sustains our work, helping us to quickly adapt as new families move in and current families find a place to call home.
Just $20 each month helps us house a feed a child and their parent for a day. Together our monthly donors help us provide the foundation of how we break the cycle of homelessness.
ROUND UP GIVING
Donate your spare change by rounding up your purchases to the next dollar through our secure system. These smaller donations add up to BIG change!
We can add up your giving of $10 a month to shelter and feed a child for two weeks. And if you can donate more, that would be great!
