How Can I Help?

We would not be able to help families without the generous support of our volunteers, host congregations, grants, individual donors, and corporate donors. You don’t need to donate thousands of dollars or volunteer for hundreds of hours to make a difference in the lives of the families we serve. Each and every dollar, donated item, and volunteer hour makes a huge difference to our families. There are many ways that you can join us in our mission to help homeless families on the North Shore.
