Immediate Needs

Housing First, Household Goods Second

We use the Housing First approach. If housing comes first, you may be wondering what happens next. What do formerly homeless individuals need? The short answer? They need to feel at home. When residents move from their car or the street to their new efficiency apartment, they often do not have the tools to live their day-to-day life. From toothbrushes to laundry detergent to food, our new residents lack the daily items that many of us take for granted.


Help us welcome new residents by donating any combination of the items below Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 2-4pm at the Pathlight Resource Center. You can also donate by shopping our AmazonSmile wish list here.
