The support of our community is critical to our continued operations and enables us to provide food, shelter and much needed counseling to the hundreds of homeless teens who stay with us during the year. Financial donations for operating expenses are always gratefully accepted.

Estate Giving

Every year we are extremely humbled by our beloved supporters who tell us they would like to include us in their estate planning. We are grateful for your generosity and we encourage you to contact your financial advisor to explore the many forms of charitable gifting that best accommodate your personal circumstances, including bequests, beneficiary designations, charitable trusts, memorial gifts and endowments.

In-Kind Donations

Our greatest needs at the shelter include such staples as canned food and fresh consumables, new clothing, socks, shoes, personal hygiene products and various household supplies, new in original packaging.

Please see our Wish List for a full listing of our shelter’s current needs.


At this time, certain items such as used furniture and used electronic and computer-related products (including monitors and TVs) are not mission critical to our ability to serve the daily needs of our teens. Unfortunately, such donations, while thoughtful, require us to direct resources to their relocation or disposal, which diverts staff attention away from the 24/7 care of our teens.

Please rest assured that we are well-served by our current inventory of furniture and electronics. However, should our needs change in future, we hope our call for donations at that time will be received with similar generosity and we thank you in advance.

Please view Where to Donate Electronics/Furniture for more information.
