The goal is to take some of the pressure off so our families can focus their energy on rebuilding and reestablishing their lives.

We make lists to provide essential supplies to our families once they've been placed into housing. Most families have experienced trauma, high levels of stress and feelings of helplessness for many years. Your gifts provide them with comfort beyond the item itself or the purchase price. Thank you for putting your attention, energy, and dollars towards helping our families.
