Shelter unitSOS Network

Many of our clients don't have the furniture or household items they need when they leave our Emergency Shelter and move into an apartment. And we sometimes need to update our shelter units.

Would you like to help families set up a new home or help us keep our shelter up to date?

It's easy—join our SOS Network and we'll let you know what's needed and how to make your donation. We often ask for:

  • Twin beds and mattress sets
  • Small bedroom dressers
  • Lamps
  • Small sofas
  • Side chairs
  • Kitchen tables and chairs
  • New linens and towels
  • Dishes, pots and pans
  • Cleaning supplies

To Join our SOS Network contact Glenda Brion and ask to be
added to the list.
