Every day of the year we provide a wide array of personal care and clothing items as a means for our clients to regain and maintain dignity, and as a necessity for those who, in finding their way to an independent and productive life, are in school, employed, or in the process of achieving self-sufficiency. Here are some examples of how you can help:


The individuals seeking help in our Resource Centers are provided with warm and nutritious food three times a day!
Each year we serve over 120, 000 meals in the Men’s Resource Center only. We couldn’t accomplish that without your generous support! Our kitchens depend on your donations to help stock our food pantry. The pantry is always in need of the following staple items: flour, oil, rice, beans, sugar, meat, poultry, coffee, canned goods (tomatoes, vegetables, etc.)
Let us fill all of the empty plates!


We accept all sizes of gently used clothing items and shoes for adult men, women, elderly, and children.
Your gifts are distributed completely free to those who come to our clothing closet to solicit the items.
