Offer Financial Support*

As with any organization, the Coalition has a number of costs associated with providing services: staffing of licensed professionals, support and upkeep of facilities, utilities, insurance and maintenance. You can help by offering a tax deductible donation today or by remembering the Coalition when planning your estate. We recently added a PayPal button to this webpage, which can be found at the bottom of the Table of Contents on the left side of the screen - please use this tool if you’re interested in making a simple, easy donation to support the work done by the Coalition.

Your contribution will provide the resources necessary to provide for a wide variety of client needs. These range from purchasing clothing used to help secure employment; providing bus tokens clients can use to get to and from work; general supplies; to cover costs associated with applying for records such as birth certificates, which are required for permanent housing.

A crucial part of the Coalition’s Federal and State funding requirements involve securing matching local funds. These matching funds are cash contributions made to the Coalition exclusively for cost sharing purposes. Every $25 provided by individual donations or the local government supports $75 in Federal funding.


In-Kind Support*

Donating material goods and/or professional services can help the Coalition leverage Federal and State funds.

*All donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Please consult your tax professional for more information.
