How YOU can give hope for our families.

1. Volunteer: volunteering your time is the best way to learn about homelessness and meet some incredible people! Think about what you do best and how you can share that with our families- is it organizing, talking, parenting(just to name a few things)

2.Advocate: advocacy is so critical to creating the systems change that we need to end homelessness.Advocacy means learning and understanding and talking to people that make decisions regarding services and supports.

3.Contribute: In kind services such as copying, printing, transportation, computer equipment, building materials or cleaning Supplies. Provide job opportunities by encouraging your company, school or place of worship to hire people experiencing homelessness. Most unemployed homeless adults desparately want to work, but need someone to give them a chance. Support a homeless family move out of a shelter, provide support for a homeless familiy such as babysitting or moral support. Raise funds for our program and attend fundraising and educational events.

Most importantly please don’t look away from a homeless family, smiling or  making eye contact can reaffirm the humanity of a person when life and situations seem to have stripped it away.
