Ways to Give

There are a variety of ways to give back to the children and families we serve living in temporary  housing: 

  • Volunteer your time. We’re always looking for weekly volunteers to spend time at one of our temporary housing sites, working directly with children and teens.
  • Give a monetary gift to enrich our educational curricula, and provide healthy snack times, parent outreach, volunteer training, and field trips. Consider becoming a sustaining, monthly donor.
  • Multiply the Impact of Your Gift by submitting your donation for a match from your employer.
  • Donate goods that allow families to focus on setting and achieving long-term self-sufficiency goals.
  • Gift Your Birthday for Play! Turn your celebration into action for children and teens experiencing homelessness.

Statistic – The National Coalition for the Homelessness

Only 77 percent of children in homelessness attend school regularly and are nine times more likely to repeat a grade, four times more likely to drop out of school, and three times more likely to be placed in a special education program.
