Donation Needs

There are numerous ways that you, your family, friends, co-workers, places of worship, clubs, everyone can help break the cycle of homelessness and hunger! JCOC provides men and women in our Emergency Shelter, Winter Shelter and Day Support programs with basic toiletries. Welcome Home Baskets go to each Rapid Rehousing client moving out of homelessness into their new place. More than 1,000 boxes worth of nonperishable food is packed into Family Food Boxes every year. See how you can help from the list of needs below. And thank you!
