How To Help

Donate to Housing Families and help some of the the most vulnerable part of our community. “This is one of the first times in my life I remember feeling safe in my home.” – anonymous parent

Giving During the Holidays – Housing Families has opportunities for giving throughout the year. Mark your calendar for back to school time and give a child in need a new backpack filled with supplies, or provide that special toy during the holiday season. Seasonal Giving is a great way to get involved during these important times in a child’s life.
