HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Our Street Outreach teams go out every day to connect with individuals experiencing homelessness. Care Kits allow our teams to build relationships and trust. The relationships you help build with Care Kit donations can be vital in connecting our neighbors to long-term services at PATH, where they can find the support and tools to gain permanent housing.

DESCRIPTION

Want to help your neighbors experiencing homelessness during COVID-19? Assemble kits for our community's most vulnerable; individuals and families who are currently experiencing homelessness.

By helping assemble "Care Kits," which include your donations of hygiene items and non-perishable snacks, you can help PATH street outreach teams connect with members of our community.

Be creative and personalize each kit with a handwritten note to let our neighbors know they are not alone!
