Make a Donation

87% of all donations to PADS go directly to help the people we serve.  Your donations help people get a safe place to sleep; a warm meal; counseling services; and more.

Give Items

PADS relies on in-kind donations of basic necessities such as personal toiletries, clothing, and other things, all which go to help our clients as well as the homeless we find during our Street Outreach efforts.

Make Lunches

PADS is always in need of people to make, bring, or put together lunches. Whether you are making bag lunches at home, helping put them together with a group at work or school, or bringing them to a shelter site, your generosity is truly appreciated.


Volunteering at PADS is an excellent way to get involved in your community and make a positive impact in the lives of others.  There are a number of ways you may give the gift of your time and compassion.
