Very limited financial assistance for utilities, rent and prescription costs may also be provided, dependent upon the availability of funds.
Our secondary mission is to provide the following items when donated: items for the care of infants, linens and blankets, fans, items for elderly care, toiletries, small household items and school supplies.

No special training is needed to volunteer; we will work with you to find what role will be rewarding for you.
