During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
Pathfinders’ Drop-In Center provides basic needs assistance and intensive case management to homeless and vulnerable youth and young adults ages 14-25. The Center provides access to food, bus tickets, hygiene products, clothing, laundry and shower facilities, as well as programs focusing on employment, education, independent living skills and social support services.
Amidst the current realities with COVID-19, we have switched the meals to be a grab-n-go style. We ask for donations of hot meals or bagged lunches for about 25 youth. Dinner donations are on Wednesday and Fridays and Lunch donations can be delivered Tuesday-Friday.
-Drop off Bagged Lunches or Lunch supplies between 11:30 AM and 12:30 PM
-Pre-bag them or just bring the items and we will assemble them. Some volunteers are choosing to partner with a local restaurant
-Most volunteers have been making 25 bagged lunches and an additional 25 sandwiches for our street outreach team to hand out.
