Donate to Our Critical Needs List

Currently, we are fulfilling the needs of clients enrolled in services at our Clifton Springs location that are experiencing homelessness. Providing what seems to be simple items needed for proper hygiene can affect one’s physical health, mental health, employability, and ability to receive adequate housing.

Also, cold weather is approaching quickly. We want to help those that are living in the elements to receive items that will keep them warm during these cold nights in our communities.

Our deadline to gather these items is December 10, 2021. If you have any questions, contact Toni Dixon at Thank you for your desire to help express to someone that they matter and we are with them during their journey.
