What We Need

You can help with the Homeless Services Program the following ways:

Food Preparation: Our Homeless Shelter is a warming kitchen only and we rely on community churches, organizations and individuals to prepare meals. Each meal needs to feed 10-12 people. If you would like more information, contact Ginger Roth at 472-0500 ext. 408, by email at ginger@hitfoundation.org or sign up online.

Donations: Our Programs (Shelter, Transitional, and Cold Shelter) rely heavily on donations from the community. These donations range from monetary to a bar of soap. Below is a list of items we distribute to clients.
