We offer volunteer experiences that allow community residents to use their skills and talents for helping our clients with transitioning to a better tomorrow.
Your financial contribution or item donations make a difference… it can mean the difference between healing and recovery or a life of regret, sadness and emotional suffering.
ADOPT A PROGRAM
You can “adopt” a specific program, a family or an individual by donating resources on a regular basis to underwrite the costs.

“I came with nothing but a bag of fears, sadness, brokenness & a lot of visual injuries. The Domestic Violence Shelters of Community Homeless Solutions put my bag aside and took care of me. They provided me with food, clothes & shelter. Meals were cooked & brought to my room while I healed. To the staff that cooked & cleaned for me and always asked if I needed anything or if I was ok, I wish nothing but God’s love to you because you made my needs your job.
I will never forget the shelter staff and everything they did for me in my time of need.”
"The Home Resource Center has helped me with a place to sleep, shower, meals and staff support. If not for the shelter, I would be sleeping in my car out on the streets. We have a computer to use to look for work and a place to live. Community Homeless Solutions helped me get a job through the Community Beautification Project and now I am an on call staff at the shelter. I look back at what I didn’t have and what I have now, and realize I am employed, saving money for a place to live and a better relationship with my family. Thank you"
