Donate your time.

From delivering meals to mentoring kids to nature restoration, there are so many ways to use your time and talents for others.Click here to find Oregon and Washington state volunteer opportunities through our partners at United Way.

Interested in becoming a shelter volunteer? Shelter volunteer shifts are about as hands-on as this work gets. You should be comfortable working together with people experiencing homelessness, and you should plan to be on your feet and doing active work during these shifts.

Donate the right gear.

Help keep your neighbors fed, dry, and safe. Outreach providers need gear they can pass out now and to have in reserve during cold weather. Having the right gear staged in the right places before a crisis will help providers better focus on direct services and life-saving efforts in the moment.

It goes beyond being a friendly voice at the other end of the line. When people feel that there's no help for them, they can develop a sort of tunnel vision. [211info] is there to drill holes through the rock so they can see some light ahead.
