In-Kind Donations

Please be advised:

The Human Solutions Family Center is currently closed.  Please do not bring donations there for the time being.

However, we do have an urgent need for food.  Families have been relocated to motels in the area, so we need convenient, re-heatable food for them. If you'd like to help, you can order items from this Amazon Wishlist - your order will be delivered right to Human Solutions and we will get it to families.

If you would like to contribute in other ways, please contact our Emergency Services Volunteer & Donations Coordinator, Christina:

Thank you!

We currently DO NOT accept clothing, most furniture or books. To see what we are currently accepting, please choose an option below to see our up- to- date needs.
