Treat someone to a hot beverage. A cup of coffee or tea may be just the thing someone needs to better face the challenges, warm body and spirit, and connect with others. That’s why we have free coffee and tea available to everyone at our six facilities and in our drop in Housing Hub.
Did you know the only pets allowed in our supported housing units are fish? Fish Project funds will go to providing tanks, supplies, and a new fish friend for any tenant who would like to have a pet. The fish provide companionship (great listeners!), a sense of connection and purpose, and enhance joy and dignity. Supported housing is more than a place to stay - it's a stable, supported home. And pets are an important part of many homes. Your donation to the Fish Project is an investment in connection and caring.

Treat someone to a Night's Rest. A $35.50 donation means a clean, safe space to rest for one individual experiencing homelessness. We serve 106 individuals daily, year-round, in the six facilities we own and operate. Your donation makes a difference. The gift of rest is priceless.

Treat someone to something special It's always best to "give the gift of choice" because, at the end of the day, the person with the most knowledge of what you really need, is you. The people we serve are no different. We will use this money to purchase grocery, various store, and Visa gift cards for 300+ people this holiday season. Gift cards allow people to purchase exactly what they need most and to do so with independence and dignity.
