More Info

After serving the poor in the streets for the last three years, we have finally found a house to use as a shelter for the homeless and to welcome the poor who need other kinds of assistance. The contract has been signed, and what's only left is to make the necessary payment and purchase beds, mattresses, linens, household supplies, towels, personal care items, food, to open our house to those in need. To purchase the house, we are in need of $10,000. We have estimated that the house can give shelter to at least 20 people, so we would need to buy 20 beds, sheets, towels, enough kitchen utensils and supplies to feed whoever comes. We are also in need of new undergarments and socks for both men and women, clothes, and shoes.

For those nearby, we would welcome gently used clothing and linens (new in package undergarments and socks only). We are also in need of a fridge, a gas stove, a washer, and basic furniture such as folding tables to use in the dining area, and other chairs to use in the sitting area.

We are recognized by the IRS as a tax-exempt organization. For those wishing to send gift cards instead, these are welcome too.

Thank you for your kindness and generosity.
