This week in service September 2, 2020

 Paperwork mostly for us this week. Working hard to finish all the paperwork that has to be filed to get our nonprofit status as well as fundraising to afford it. 

Waiting on shipments of supplies for the blessings bags. 

Our last in house veteran has graduated to stable housing! 

In house, We'll use the next few months to upgrade the dorm and begin building our future dorms, which will be tiny houses.   

In outreach, we'll continue to make contacts and network to help those in need we meet. 

Robert Kirkpatrick II and Jennifer came by this week. Lended a much needed hand. 

We are out of most supplies. Waiting for shipments for some things and funding for others. Several of our shipments have been delayed. If you would like to ship us supplies for blessings packs, please do! 

Things we're running low on:

Tote bags

Zip lock bags

hand sanitizer

masks, 

travel toothbrush and toothpaste packs

floss

granola bars

water

Cheese crackers

Roll on deodorant

sanitary wipes

bath wipes

socks 

underwear

rain Pancho

dry shampoo

nail sets

washcloths

Canned goods

Individually wrapped spoons


None of what we do could be done without all our amazing volunteers! We grow as our network of amazing volunteers and patrons grows and we are so thankful for each and every one of you!

Most of our in house projects have been put on hold due to covid and funding issues, but our outreach is helping so many! I am using this downtime to rework the in-house program to better fit everyone's needs. 

Current fundraisers are earmarked for blessing pack supplies, filing for nonprofit status, upgrading dorms,  and our first tiny home. 

Don't forget www.antonrogers.com extended a fundraiser for us until the end of September! Advocate shirts, bags, and stickers now available!
