Our Greatest Need
Our Street Outreach team is working with individuals who are sleeping outside and often are not connected to any other services or resources. In the summer our staff try to share protein rich snacks and hydrating liquids to promote good health – help them stock up by donating protein bars, jerky, canned tuna, bottled water or sports drinks! You can bring these items to 945 N College Street (see donation times above) or use our College Street Amazon Wishlist to send direct.

For Housing Programs (Moore Place and Scattered Site):
Newly housed tenants begin their new lives with nothing – you can help them make a house a home and continue to maintain a nice home with Welcome Home or Fresh Start Kits:
Welcome Home Kitsfor newly housed neighbors include a whole set of household items like linens, pots and pans, and shower curtains.
Fresh Start Kits are provided to tenants who have just moved in to a new apartment or who do not yet have income.
Tickets or memberships to local sporting events, performances, museums, movie passes, etc. Access to these recreational opportunities are beyond the limited means of our residents. These activities provide recreational and therapeutic benefit to our residents, as well as help them fully participate in the life of our city.
