Popular Questions

Can I donate used clothing?

Please call ahead or contact us via the website to inquire about our need for clothing. At any given time we may have an overabundance of certain clothing items. We can educate you on our needs at the time, or we can direct you to other community services in the area where you can donate your clothing items.

Is my donation of goods tax-deductible?

Yes, it is! We provide a receipt for any items donated to the shelter.

Where and when can I drop off item donations?

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) we have changed our times temporarily. Donations can be dropped off to our shelter between 9 a.m. to noon Mondays and Fridays only. For safety reasons, we temporarily ask that you drop donations off at Door 2, ring the buzzer to request Bryan. He will record your information for acknowledgement purposes, then after you exit, he will bring in the donations.

How can I help Project Hope for the Homeless in other ways?

We appreciate any help that you can provide. A great way is to spread the word about Project Hope for the Homeless – tell your friends, neighbors, and your church! Also – spreading the word through social media and visiting our Facebook page is a great way to reach many people, and also keep you informed on our current needs.
