The Shelter attempts to provide an array of personal care items as a means for our clients to regain and maintain dignity, and as a necessity for those who, in finding their way to an independent and productive life, are employed or are seeking employment.
Your gifts bring added relief from the struggles and social indignities that many who come to our door must struggle with on a daily basis.
Thank you for your donations that help us provide clean, comfortable shelter for our residents.
