FOUNDED IN 1989, CITY RELIEF HAS MOBILIZED THOUSANDS OF VOLUNTEERS TO COMPASSIONATELY SERVE THOSE STRUGGLING WITH HOMELESSNESS BY PROVIDING HOPE & RESOURCES THAT LEAD TOWARDS LIFE TRANSFORMATION.
We leverage our mobility to consistently show up every week for the people in our cities who are struggling with homelessness. Our pop-up, drop-in style outreaches create safe and welcoming environments where our guests can feel a sense of normalcy, even for just a few minutes. Our model emphasizes COMPASSION by offering hot meals, health/hygiene supplies, as well as other urgently needed items like cell phones and on-site access to community partners, which lead to CONNECTION and hope that tomorrow can be better than today. Our Follow-up Team provides wraparound care coordination and advocacy that allows our friends on the street to be part of our COMMUNITY.
