Your in kind donations keep our shelves stocked and ready for the next resident…we welcome your donations and encourage you to check our Needs List frequently as it is updated regularly to reflect our highest priority items.  Imagine what it takes to efficiently run your household…now multiply that times 6 families and that will give you an idea of our daily shelter operations!
