Run a Drive at Your Site
Looking for the most effective way to help Citizens’ mission in a very tangible way? Drives are an easy and fun way to help the families living in our shelters. Whether it be diapers, winter jackets, gloves, boots or school supplies, there’s always a need throughout the year.
Host a Corporate Jean's Day
Set up a corporate Jean’s Day at your business. Ask all employees to give $5 that day. If you already work in a casual setting, try something different — we have many ideas to choose from.
Provide Childcare at our Playroom
Of the family members we supported last year, 55% were under the age of 15. Each of our facilities offers a playroom for young family members and we welcome you to participate as certified childcare volunteers. Requires background check, training, and sign up for a regular shift.
