She not only helps provide clothing for our residents, but helps out anyone in the community. All donations are tax decutible to the extent allowable by the Internal Revenue Service.
Please no Mouthwash. We do not take food donations; however, if you or your organization would like to make bag lunches for us to hand out to our residents as they leave for the day would be greatly appreciated. We average 85 people per night and they often do not get to eat lunch during the day and bag lunches ensure they get what they need to eat. Donations to the Shelter are accepted Monday – Friday between 8am – 3:30pm.

What Your Donation Funds
Monetary donations are the lifeblood of the Shelter. Our budget is 80% funded by individuals, businesses, and churches. Donations cover insurance, salaries, utilities, maintenance, repairs and when possible funds to help those who need a one-time monetary gift that keeps them from actually becoming homeless. In some situations we can use funds to purchase specific items such as steel toed boots for a resident who obtains a job that requires them. Our cost per night per resident is $25 and we have an average of 85 residents per night.
