We need your help. When the homeless arrive at our door, they often carry all their material possessions in a plastic bag.
As the ONLY extended stay 24 hour, year round, emergency HOMELESS SHELTER in Lorain County for men, women and children, more often than not we find our supplies at a critical low point or out completely.
We have created a 'Wish List' of the items that are most in need. Many volunteers who really want to help cannot, due to work, family, social schedules. We created the 'Wish List' just for you - a 'behind the scenes' way to volunteer, contribute and help us help the homeless break the cycle of poverty with dignity.
Commitment and follow through to a 'Wish List' drive is a must. We depend on our neighbors in the community and will remove items as volunteers (individuals or groups) commit to an item(s). We strongly suggest one member of volunteer group 'tours' our agency; tours are help monthly.
Current items needed at the shelter: new pillows, new or gently used towels and wash cloths, paper goods and laundry detergent as well as personal care items such a toothpaste, shampoo and body soap.
