How to Help


Financial Contributions

A financial contribution is the most versatile type of assistance, since it can be used immediately when a need arises. Your donations are tax-deductible and can be used for operating costs, resident assistance, shelter supplies, and other needs. To make a donation, a check can be mailed to: P.O. Box 411, Amery WI 54001.

We deeply appreciate your support.

Donated Goods

Donations of food, paper products, cleaning supplies, laundry supplies, diapers, and wipes make us less reliant on cash gifts to provide necessary food and supplies while our residents are housed in our shelters. We also supply starter kits of many of these things when our residents exit into permanent housing. They appreciate the assistance they receive from these donations.
