We aren’t just warehousing people here. We are giving the homeless a community and a way to contribute meaningfully to society. Either through our woodwork shop, our gardens, our computer lab or just helping around the facility, we are helping the homeless feel valued and meaningful by becoming useful community members.

Your donations make all that happen.

Our Water Bill Donation Drive

Water is a precious commodity for the homeless. They rely on us for drinking water, showers and laundry.

Please click here to learn more about how water helps our homeless. (You can donate a little to the cause too, if you want.)

Our Operations Drive

Simply put… we can’t continue our work without funding to keep the lights on and the doors open.

Items for The Second Chance Store

The Second Chance Store is 100% homeless run. They sell donated items in their store. Then they decide where the money goes. Some might go to the people running the store. Some might go to one of the many projects they have running. By donating and purchasing from the Second Chance Store you are very directly impacting the lives of the homeless in our charity.

You can bring donations to the right side of the building at 15 Broad St. in Akron Ohio. They are open Monday through Saturday 9-5 and Sunday noon to five. If the door is locked just knock.

Items for Charity Auctions

Through Rubber City Auctions, we run auctions regularly. You can bring items to be auctioned. We have a full service auction house right on the premises. All proceeds go to The Homeless Charity facility and operations.  These items can be taken directly to the Second Chance Store.

You can bring them to the right side of the building at 15 Broad St. in Akron Ohio. They are open Monday through Saturday 9-5 and Sunday noon to five. If the door is locked just knock.

We often are able to come pick up items free of charge. Call Sage for more details: 330-416-7519.

Become a Homeless Charity Member

You can become a member for very little money. Membership will give you special discounts and special access to events. But most of all it will help us continue our operation. Becoming a member is not much money. But together it is incredibly powerful and shows the world that we truly care about the weakest among us.

Daily Living Supplies

And if you are near by we seem to always be in need of:

  • Dish washing soap (the stuff for washing by hand)
  • Clothes washing detergent
  • Dryer Sheets
  • Trash bags – 13 gallon and 30 gallon
  • (someone stole a bunch of our shower supplies. So now we could use some shampoo and body soap)

You can drop things off Monday through Saturday 9-5 and Sunday noon to 5. Just come down the right side of our building. If the door is locked just knock.

We’re at:
15 Broad St.
