2021 Back to School Drive

Help brighten the first days of school for homeless children at our shelters!

As children transition to an in-person school setting, after distance learning during COVID, we want to ensure they are well equipped and feeling confident! We need your help to set-up our highest need kids for success in this new school year!

Gift cards are amazing! They give families the ability to respond to the child’s most immediate need! We’ve also set up a “shopping list” to raise money for high need items to set up our children for success--you can add multiple “items” when you donate. New shoes and new clothing are at the top of this list! 

 On average, 49% of the residents at our 3 emergency homeless shelters are children. After 18 months of COVID, your support is so appreciated at Midway, San Leandro Shelter and our DV Safe House. Please share with family, friends, churches, community groups, and anyone you think would be interested!
