How You Can Help the Homeless Alliance Housing Programs

WestTown Supply Closet Drive

Wal-Mart or Target Gift Cards
To be used at case manager’s discretion with approval from program manager. Sometimes things come up that we just don’t have a funding stream for or a resource that is immediately available. IE: school uniforms, medication, car maintenance items, emergency food assistance until we can get the family to a food pantry, clothing for work (special shoes, scrubs).
Please contact Kim Woods      kwoods@homelessalliance.org

Birthday Cards & Gift Cards
To be sent to clients in the program for their birthday. Often times, parents in the program struggle with providing their children with a cake and gift to celebrate their birthday. Gift cards should be $5 and come from such locations as: Baskin Robbins, Braums, Sara Sara Cupcake, Cuppies & Joe, or Pinkitzel.

Welcome Home Baskets
A laundry basket or hamper filled with household items. Typically when we place a family in housing they don’t have anything but their clothing. Items needed: cleaning supplies (disinfectant, mop, broom, dust pan, dish soap, etc.), dishes, pot, pan, pot holder, towels, toilet paper, paper towels, shower curtain, can opener, phone, laundry soap, etc… You can be as simple or creative as you wish this need.

Gift Certificates for Restaurants, Movies, etc…
We use these for incentives for our families in our supportive housing program, Building Foundations. These families work with a case manager. If a family completes a goal on their service plan or completes the life skills course, parenting class or anger management class, we reward them. We like to use activities the family can enjoy together and promote relationship building.

Gas Gift Certificates or 30-Day Bus Passes
Transportation is huge barrier for the families we work with. Families have very little or zero income and just getting to doctors appointments, mental health appointments, job interviews, and getting to work can be a challenge.

Day Planners
We need these to help keep our families organized and focused.
