 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.
See instructions here
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...)

Sorry, we cannot accept cash donations.

The bare fact is that buying food costs money, and we need monetary donations more than anything, even with a 100% volunteer workforce. We recognize that not everyone has the means to give, and heartily thank those who can and do.

Click the "Donate Now" button at the right to help make a difference!

Consider the Homeless is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, so your donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. 

Until further notice, we are NOT collecting clothing donations.

While we are very grateful for past donations, the seasonal nature of clothing needs and the cost of storage have prompted us to temporarily suspend the collection of everything except tents in good condition, food, and items used in food service. When that changes, this page will be updated. 

We are always grateful for the products we need to continue serving soup and delivering groceries!

  12oz paper cups for hot soup
  Plastic soup spoons
  Napkins or paper towels
  Bottled water
  Bags of hard candy
  Fresh fruit – Please only if you can get us enough to at least feed 80,
    we serve over 100 a night   (only Wed, Sat, or daytime Thurs and Sun.)
  Sandwich-sized zip-lock baggies
  Grocery and gas gift cards

Please send a detailed description of any items you can supply and your phone number to:  We will get back to you as soon as possible with further instructions.
