Your future donations will:

Continue to run our transitional houses in downtown Akron’s Middlebury neighborhood.
Continue outreach to keep giving away, free of charge, clothes, household items, tents, tarps, blankets, heaters, propane, toiletries and more.
Acquire, Improve and Maintain Houses through the Akron Land Bank for those on waiting lists for housing.
Acquire & Maintain Shuttle Service to better serve those who remain in, and will be returned to, the woods. We want to be able to gather them and bring them to our day center each day in the cold winter and spring months. We also want to run a shuttle for newly housed homeless, so they do not feel isolated and alone in their new homes and can continue to benefit from our health and addiction services and the support of the Day Center community.
