Serve Meals to People Experiencing Homelessness!

Help our kitchen staff prepare and serve lunch or dinner to 100 participants at The Taper.  Volunteers are needed for some light prep, meal set up, and serving our participants.  This is a great way to make a meaningful impact and get to know some of the people we help.

Items of Greatest Need

Here are our areas of greatest need:

WELCOME HOME BASKETS

Welcome Home Baskets set our participants up for success when they move into permanent housing. They have all the essentials like cleaning supplies, bedding, and light decor to help their new house a home.  As we move 400 people from our Project Roomkey sites into permanent housing over the next 90 days, you can help us meet this need.
