Many of our clients know first-hand what it is like to experience hunger. We keep a small pantry in our office stocked with nonperishable, single-serve, easy to prepare food items so that when a youth tells us they haven’t eaten lately, we can offer them a little something.
We welcome each new resident to our transitional housing program with a starter kit of basic toiletries. We also keep an emergency supply of toiletry items on hand. Some of the essential items (travel size preferred) needed:
