 Click the button above to donate using any credit card or debit card. If you wish, you can setup a recurring donation, which, even in small amounts, is especially helpful to us as recurring donations allow us to plan ahead and take advantage of bulk purchases.

Network for Good has partnered with Facebook and 100% of your donation through their DONATE buttons comes to us.
You will see these buttons on our Facebook Page by some of the postings. You can even start one on your own page.

By adding a donate button to your post, friends will be able to donate to Consider The Homeless directly on Facebook. No fees for donations to nonprofits. (we like this...)

Things we are not accepting at this time 

We have very limited space to store items that we cannot distribute immediately, so we carefully monitor inventory. And there are some items we have chosen not to attempt to distribute because they are particularly hard to fit. At this time we are not accepting any t-shirts, shoes, boots, toiletry items (soaps, toothpaste) or over-the-counter drugs
