Basic Needs

  • Beulah’s Place

    Beulah's Place rescues at-risk homeless teens off the streets and helps them finish high school, get sustainable jobs, and transition back into communities successfully. These are the kids with no safe family or options who will die without intercession, or be lost in the cracks of life. We recently helped a young girl who had been living in and out of her car for 5 months despite working two jobs find housing. This year, we need more dollars for emergency housing and long term housing solutions, i.e. rent deposits, other housing assistance. Please join us in giving these teens a chance to have a future and a hope!

  • Furnish Hope

    Together, We Furnish Hope & Homes We furnish homes for families transitioning into stable housing by collecting, storing and redistributing furniture and household essentials. We partner with dozens of area nonprofits and social service agencies, working on a referral basis, to provide a layer of support that in the past has not existed. Once referred, we connect with the family to better understand their needs. Our team then gathers and delivers the requested home goods. Together, we furnish hope and homes. Your donation, no matter the amount, will allow us to continue providing the comforts of home for our Central Oregon neighbors in need.
