Wish List – In Kind Donations

By donating everyday items to Family Promise, you can make a difference in the lives of families experiencing homelessness who are working hard to regain sustainable independence.

Family Promise needs in-kind donations such as personal toiletries, public transportation passes, diapers, books, etc., to provide comfort and relief to our guest families.   In addition, we welcome donations of gently used computers for our guests to use at our Day Center for job searches, resume writing, apartment hunting, etc.
