How You Can Help the Homeless Alliance Housing Programs

WestTown Supply Closet Drive

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.

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.

Art Supplies
The Homeless Alliance and City Care offer the “fresh start” art program to provide people experiencing homelessness in Oklahoma City with a supportive environment for creating art. In addition to providing a potential source of income, open studio art programs enable people experiencing homelessness to express themselves creatively, manage emotional issues, develop social skills through positive interaction with a peer group, develop a greater sense of dignity and skills transferable to employment. Fresh Start is in need of art supplies of all kinds, including: paint, canvas, sketch pads, paper towels, etc.
