You can help

We are deeply grateful for help provided by many generous volunteers and interns. Contact us if you would like to volunteer as a tutor, mentor, cook a meal.

Donations of clothing (for 18-20 year old women), bedding, personal and household products are always welcome. See our Amazon Wish List for ideas! Gift cards are always welcome for groceries or the women’s personal needs.  (We frequently shop at Local Market Foods, Costco, Jewel, Target.)
