Back to School Bash 2022

We are currently collecting back to school supplies for the youth that live in shelter or those who are in our community program.  Our goal is to start each child off in this new school year with everything they need to be successful and confident.  

Supplies Needed

While we gratefully accept any new school supplies, the items to the left, are the ones that are needed the most by our students.  See below for drop off locations.

Adopt a Student

One way to help get a child ready and excited about a new school year is to start them off with a new outfit to help build confidence and self esteem.  We are looking for our community to adopt a child in shelter to provide them with a new outfit from head to toe.  If you would like to adopt a child, head to
