Give Hope for the Holidays

With the support of our donor community, we work hard to make the holiday season special for young people who are experiencing homelessness.

You can help make the holidays brighter for young people by donating needed items to our holiday backpacks, by helping with seasonal outings, or by providing gift cards or monetary donations.

Please note, we are looking for specific items during the holiday season.

Backpack Campaign

Caring Calendar

The Caring Calendar initiative is a heart-warming program that brings a little extra holiday cheer to these deserving young people.

Much like the beloved tradition of an advent calendar, our Caring Calendar program provides the youth in our care with an activity or item each day from December 1st to December 25th.

Thank you to our sponsors who have contributed to our Caring Calendar to make the holidays a little brighter for young people. Click here here to see a live calendar of events and items that youth are already looking forward to in the days leading up to the holidays. If you are interested in getting involved we are looking for help with our Backpack Campaign.
