Corporate and Foundation Giving

Much of our work is supported by generous corporations and foundations in our community. Through event sponsorships, grants, employee giving campaigns, and direct donations, these organizations power the work of our teams.


Volunteers give time or talent to support our clients. Whether serving meals in the kitchen, sorting donations, tutoring children, working in our health clinic, or helping adults find a new job, there is room for a range of talents to support out work.
