Last year, with the support of individual donors, grants, and community partners, we served nearly 4,000 individuals and prevented over 200 evictions. Your support is essential for us to keep fighting homelessness, eviction, and food insecurity. Thank you!
We rely on volunteers to continue our critical work in the community. Our food pantry, Project SOUP, has the highest need for volunteers. Please visit our Food Assistance page to learn more about our food pantry and volunteering opportunities.
