In Kind Donations

Basic Needs Items

We have a variety of in-kind needs, especially basic needs and items to make residents’ new apartments feel more like home.  We keep basic needs items on hand for residents during times of need. Access to these items helps our residents maintain their health, dignity, and confidence when they can’t afford basic needs items.
