Two ways you can help those in need:
Donate to Tents 4 Homeless
Tents-4-Homeless addresses the critical need to protect homeless people from inclement weather and to offer a temporary night-time place of refuge by providing durable, light-weight, weather-resistant tents and sleeping bags to homeless women, men and children not in emergency shelters.
The Tents-4-Homeless project does not address the root causes of homelessness — rapid economic globalization, increasing trends towards privatization and land speculation, lack of job training programs, lack of affordable housing options, poverty and mental illness. The Resources menu bar on the right lists many organizations working on structural changes to end homelessness.
Our efforts are aimed at addressing the pressing need of homeless people for a basic shelter to protect themselves from the rain or cold nights when emergency housing in a shelter program is not available. You can help by donating a tent or sleeping bag, or by making a donation so that Tents-4-Homeless may acquire and distribute tents and sleeping bags on your behalf.
Decent, safe and affordable housing is a fundamental human right. We have an obligation to ensure the housing needs of all are met, especially poor and vulnerable people and their families.
Tents and funds donated to the Tents-4-Homeless project will be distributed to homeless individual and families currently without shelter. Additional items like sleeping bags, thermal underwear and blankets are also welcomed.
All donations are tax exempt through the Center for Human Rights & Constitutional Law, Inc.
