Hello HeadingHome.org!! We have around 30 Covid Kits we made which include 1 Mask, 1 Hand Wash, 1 Pair of gloves and a Covid-19 information sheet. They can't be mailed. Where can we drop them off?
THAT IS WHY THE PEOPLE WHO RUN THE WEST SIDE WONT RECYCLE, RENEW AND/OR REPURPOSE OTHER PEOPLE'S PROPERTY. THEY THOR OTHER PEOPLE'S PROPERTY AWAY AT THE WEST SIDE. THEY DID IT TO MINE TIME AND TIME AND TIME AGAIN, THE LAST TIME I HAD TO DUMP STER DIVE FORM MY OWN THINGS BUT DO NOT ASK DONOVAN WHY I HAD TO GO IN THERE AND DO THAT.
DONATE BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE.....DON'T HESITATE TO DONATE........INSTEAD OF THROWING AWAY OTHER PEOPLE'S PROPERTY, WHY CAN'T THOSE THAT RUN THE WEST SIDE, WHO COULD, SHOULD AND/OR WOULD BE BETTER OFF GIVING OTHER PEOPLE'S PROPERTY TO PLACES THAT COULD SHOULD AND WOULD BENEFIT FROM IT MORE, SUCH AS ST. FELIX'S FOOD AND CLOTHING BANK, ST. VINCENT DE PAUL'S, ABUNDANT GRACE FREE STORE, GOODWILL, THE SALVATION ARMY, SAVORS, AND OR OTHER RESALE SHOPS?
Hello I'm homeless...how can u help me out..I'm reaching out to you
Heading Home needs a van that when transporting individuals from the shelter they can properly be seated and secured with a seatbelt for every single individual riding in the van...there is no need to cram 7 to 15 adults and children some sitting on the floor of the van with no seat belt and Management/Supervisors/Program Directors clearly aware, allowing and giving orders for staff to transport like that all the time, that is not acceptable! Buy a new Van with proper seating in order to transport individuals safely.
Hi I need emergency help with first month rent and deposit pleez
If anyone knows this mans whereabouts please contact me. Some people had my dads phone tonight and I haven't heard from him since January.
We at the WESTSIDE SHELTER would like to thank Charmaine and her group at CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST on Churchill for the donations. We greatly appreciate the generosity!!! I am especially grateful for the moment with the group in uplifting prayer. THANK YOU!!!
