Housing Initiatives is the solution for ending homelessness for our most vulnerable neighbors and veterans who suffer from mental illness, but we can't do it without your support.

Too many of our homeless neighbors are ill, without hope, and have no to turn to. With your help, we can guide them out of the darkness and towards recovery.

Currently, our waiting list is long. While funding and supportive services are available now to bring people in from the streets, our housing units are at capacity and we have no extra apartment homes to provide.

Your gift is an investment that enables Housing Initiatives to purchase and renovate more homes to fill the huge need. You will play a significant role in the life of someone who is sick and in great need of help.

Join with us today and bring someone home.
