No Place Like Home
There’s truly No Place Like Home. That place where we all feel strong, stable and safe.
And yet thousands of our neighbors face a constant risk of losing their housing or do not have access to a stable place to call home. Our fellow community members, especially at this uncertain point in our shared history, are in dire need of our support.
Due to COVID-19, our community members who were already at risk of losing their homes have found themselves either unemployed or facing reduced hours. For those families, individuals and seniors facing extreme risk of losing their homes, essential household supplies can mean the difference between maintaining stability in one’s own home or falling into homelessness.
You can help keep our neighbors safely and comfortably in their homes with a donation of these Commonly Requested Items and Emergency Supplies for People Living Outdoors (all of which we directly requested by the people we serve):
