Why Help?

In 2020 approximately 400 individuals were living without a roof over their head or a door to lock for safety and 372 people including children were living in an emergency or transitional shelter.   That's too many, one is too many.  You can help "Open The Door" to a persons new future with safety and stability. 

Our philosophy is to give hand ups, not hand outs. We want to permanently change the lives of those that are living, or close to living, without a home. Our programs are helping end the chronic homelessness epidemic that is happening in our own neighborhoods.

If you're tired of seeing people asking for money on the streets or living in unsafe conditions, it's time to get involved.
