Did you know?

Children experiencing homelessness have twice the rate of learning disabilities as non-homeless children.1 Your donation of $25 is enough to provide over an hour of advocacy for a child who struggles to keep up in school. Our Educational Specialist creates individualized academic plans to help children improve grades and succeed in school.

For every 100 extremely low-income renter households, there are only 30 affordable and available rental homes.2 Approximately 99% of the families we serve have an income of less than $30,000. Your donation of $100 is enough to provide a month of case management services to ensure that all of our families attain permanent housing.

See if your company provides a corporate matching gift, to help maximize your donation.
