Ten Things You Can Do To Help The Homeless…
It’s easy to feel disconnected from the crisis of homelessness in the Inland Empire, as many of us juggle work, family and outside activities.  However, there is one thing we can all do to bring our communities together to address homelessness – VOLUNTEER If you want to make a difference, donate your time for the homeless.  Here are few things you can do to make a difference.

  1. Get Involved.  Educate yourself and your family about who homeless people are and how you & your community can make a difference.
  2. Prepare & serve a meal. Love to cook? Use your passion for cooking to prepare and serve a meal to our participants in Harold Cares About Your Future; a community-based parenting class for mothers between the ages of 14 and 21.  Having a home-cooked meal provided by one of our volunteers is truly a treat!
  3. Donate your professional skills Teach a workshop or develop a training class.  Many of our clients need professional skills training and/or life skills.
  4. Take a tour - Call the shelter @ (909) 920-0453 to schedule a tour of our shelter office and transitional housing.  This is a great way to see first-hand how Foothill Family Shelter is helping families become self-sufficient.
  5. Donate work appropriate clothing and shoes If you have dress clothes & shoes that no longer fit or that you simply never wear, consider donating them to FFS.  In order to find & keep a job, homeless individuals need work-appropriate clothing & shoes – something FFS never has enough of…
  6. Say YES!  In My Back Yard – support your local homeless shelter.  Foothill Family Shelter services all of San Bernardino County, as well as the West End of Los Angeles County.  Foothill Family Shelter is one of two shelters in San Bernardino County.  Homelessness is up 122% over last year!
  7. Make your FAITH matter If you are a member of a faith-based organization, get committed to ending homelessness through community action and mobilization.
  8. Host a reception benefiting Foothill Family ShelterFor a holiday twist, ask attendees to make a small donation to FFS and make a difference!
  9. Get your family & friends involved!  Share these ideas with people you know.  We ALL can work together to end Homelessness!
  10. Paper Goods, Hygiene (Full Size Items) and Cleaning Supplies Donation!  The residents are always in need of paper towels, napkins, paper plates, toilet paper, toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, sponges, kitchen cleaners, bathroom cleaners (non-abrasive), etc.  If you have any questions, please feel free to call the office at (909) 920-0453.
