Do You Want to Help?
Contact us for volunteer opportunities or to donate items or resources to help our homeless neighbors.
Many people want to help our homeless community members but they don’t know how. One of the most practical ways to help is by providing simple items that can be stored easily and used daily.
We have provided a “shopping list” of items that can be purchased and donated to our Heritage Health Street Medicine & Community Outreach team. We will make sure donated items get to those in need. The people we serve are very grateful for your gift.
This shopping list provides many of the bare essentials that will help those who are experiencing homelessness to stay fed, clean, and warm.
We encourage you to donate the following items to the Heritage Health Homeless Outreach mobile unit or keep them with you to distribute when you see someone in need:
These items, along with cash donations can be dropped off in the collection box or at Heritage Health’s Street Medicine + Community Outreach Office:
