How to Support & Donation Guidelines
HOW YOU CAN SUPPORT THE HOME
Thank you for considering how you can support the children and the Home's mission during this tumultuous time. While we can't be with you in person, YOU, our community, has always been there to ensure our children are well cared for and have the resources they need.
Here are four ways you can best support the Home during this time of caution and social distancing:

Ensuring we have the financial means to respond to the needs of our children during this time is paramount. Due to the change of schedule that everyone is facing, we are now educating our 30+ youth onsite. This change means additional staff on our schedule, additional meals and snacks, supplies for additional on-site activities, and additional supplies for cleaning and disinfecting to ensure we maintain a clean and healthy home for our kids.

As we have specific material needs, they will be posted here. Our designated drop off times for donations are Mon/Wed/Fri/Sat from 1-3 p.m., but we ask that you please have donations shipped if possible to reduce risk on our campus.

To help the Home off-set food costs and assist in the kitchen, consider ordering a meal for pick up or delivery for our kids and our team! We have updated our meal partner program to accept ordered meals only during this time. We encourage individuals, families, and groups to support small businesses in the area and pitch in to order a delicious and nutritious meal for the children in our care.

Follow us on Facebook for positive posts, resources we find, fun activities for kids, and ways to engage with the Home during this time. We will be posting ways your family can still be involved in Child Abuse Prevention Month during April, and we are exploring possible virtual events for you and those you know to go the [social] distance during this time.
Due to the threat of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) in our community, the Home is taking several precautionary measures to protect our children, teammates, volunteers, donors, supporters, and community.
We will be making the following changes in regards to donations to the Home until further notice:
- Donations from Amazon and other shipments will be still be accepted and are encouraged.
- Deliveries of donations must be pre-arranged. Deliveries must be made at the lobby of the administrative building on Mon/Wed/Fri/Sat between 1-3p.m..
- All donations will be sanitized before coming into the building.
- Food donated by meal partners must be ordered from a restaurant, and must be dropped off at the front lobby. Food prepared at home will not be accepted.
All of our current needs are posted on our website and will be updated regularly as needs are identified and arise.
To continue your support of the Home during this time, you can:
- Give financially. Ensuring we have the financial means to respond to the needs of our children during this time is paramount.
- Check our needs list for any supplies you may be able to help with during this time.
