How can you help in the fight against homelessness?

Heart handsWhat can you as concerned neighbor do to help?

  • Speak and think kindly of people experiencing homelessness — it’s a difficult situation, is not a chosen condition, and rarely self-inflicted
  • Refer someone who is homeless or at risk of homelessness to the Northwest Michigan Community Action Agency (947-3870) for housing search and assistance.
  • Refer someone to the Goodwill Inn (922-4890) if emergency shelter is what’s needed.
  • Hire a Goodwill homeless and housing program participant. Our clients have many skills and diverse work and educational backgrounds. Contact Workforce Development for more information.
  • Donate personal hygiene or personal care items to the Goodwill Inn or other shelters.
  • Donate time, talent, or money to the work of non-profits addressing issues of homelessness.
