When we ask for your support, we show you where and how we put your gifts to work.
When you read that we are helping our local neighbors take the next step to get back on their feet, this is happening because of you.
- In 2014, hundreds of our homeless neighbors received direct financial assistance for housing and immediate needs as well as referral services for substance abuse, domestic violence, medical and dental care and employment needs.
- Working with the Families in Transition program, we are helping the more than 950 homeless children in the Lucia Mar Unified School District stay in school.
We need your support to continue to provide a helping hand to these students and their families.
- So far in 2014, we have helped hundreds of families and children with in-kind donations valued at more than $100,000 – including food, household goods, clothing, shoes, dental and hygiene products, diapers, blankets, gift cards and more.
- By the end of 2014, we’re hoping to match that amount in cash. Your friends and neighbors have already raised $75,000 to help families in crisis.
We need an additional $25,000 to underwrite the referral and support services our staff and volunteers provide every day to help families and children by connecting them with services, and helping them move from the streets into stable homes.
Please donate what you can, and know that your contribution helps 5Cities Homeless Coalition continue its life-changing efforts.
You give, we act, and families find homes and hope. That’s our formula for helping, one family at a time.
Your year-end contribution may provide you some tax savings, along with the certainty that you have helped your neighbors in need this holiday season.
