Cash always helps for things that are critical or unanticipated needs and when other agencies do not or cannot provide for the guests.

We can always use donations for FAST bus passes that are pretty constantly needed, or to help people get certified copies of various documents  for example duplicated ID cards (always a cost).

Basic capacity items

  • one or two additional wireless printers
  • donated laptops for the guests
  • 4-5 wireless security cameras / software and a desktop pc for monitoring

Educational tools

  • Books/dvd’s and dvd players for the youth/children in the children’s room
  • Parenting skill building DVD’s, healthy child development tools that can be seen over a DVD player or television
  • Healthy snacks/juices for the guests (women, children ages 1 and up to mid-adolescence)

Hygiene and daily living items

  • We usually build hygiene bags for the ladies that include deodorant, shampoo/conditioner of various types to ensure diversity of hair products based on race/ethnicity
  • Quick wipes,  Feminine napkins/products, combs and/or brushes, hand sanitizers, skin lotions
  • Pens/pads for notes and schedule tracking, small portfolios or calendars
  • Many of the ladies need backpacks or valises to carry things around in

If you can help with these please connect
