Ways you can help us

Donation Drives

Organize a “drive” for items we always need. Toiletries, especially toothpaste, toothbrushes, and deodorant are always in demand.

Weekend Meals

We rely on volunteers to prepare lunch and dinner for approximately 40 people on Saturdays and Sundays.

Hospitality Volunteer

Hospitality Volunteers spend time with guests and help with chores that keep the shelter running. We need hospitality volunteers weeknight evenings and all day on weekends.
