Help support Shelter for 2020-21!

Your donations via our online form, Venmo, Benevity, or paper check will make safe shelter for our vulnerable neighbors possible!

November 2020 update: Heart and Home is preparing to launch another cold-weather shelter season, from December 6, 2020 – April 5, 2021. Our program offers nearly 1,800 warm nights indoors as we serve 15 participants for 17 weeks. Heart and Home is entirely community funded. We rely on you, our neighbors, to help us provide housing and dignity for women in our community. Can you help us keep the love going this winter? Thank you! – Mary W. and the Heart and Home Board.

Heart and Home Collaborative is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Our federal EIN is 46-2219062. Donations may be used at our discretion, for any purpose consistent with our mission.

Choose how to donate:

Option 1. Venmo us at HHCollab

Option 2. Donate through Benevity workplace giving

Many local employers, such as Apple, Google, Microsoft, and HP will match employee donations to registered causes using the “workplace giving” platform Benevity. This is GREAT because it provides additional funds for our work. FYI the process of releasing funds through Benevity takes approximately 60 days. If you aren’t sure if your employer has a matching gift program, you can look them up via this website or your internal employee web site. While you’re at it, check if your employer will match your volunteer hours!
