Safe Homes accepts in-kind donations to distribute to youth in need. Some examples of items donated in the past include personal care products, gift certificates to grocery stores, Target, Walmart, art stores, and restaurants. In addition, we welcome donations for our Transgender Closet.   


Many happy couples have asked their guests to make donations to Safe Homes in lieu of wedding/shower gifts. This is a unique way to share your celebration and make a difference in the lives of at-risk youth. You will be notified of any such donations and your friends’ gifts will be acknowledged in our Agency Annual Report.
