Most of the young people we serve have limited access to resources and income once they secure housing. Help give them a warm welcome into their new home with some basic items to start their journey of independence.
WAYS YOU CAN HELP
Funding a Welcome Kit provides our youth with what they need and gives them the opportunity to make their own decisions on sizes, colors, and preferences for decorating their space.
MAKE A KIT
Get together with friends, family, or your organization and put together a kit, or two, or fifteen! Each Welcome Kit will go directly to someone when they move in.
GIVE GIFT CARD
Gift cards to Big Lots, Target, Walmart, Dollar Tree are great ways to help. They can also be used to purchase additional household items that our clients choose.
