How can I make a difference?

You can make a difference by donating time or money to the shelter.

  • Donate: Please consider making a financial contribution to Carpenter’s Shelter. Individuals gifts are our largest source of funding, so we rely on the support of generous community members to provide our less-fortunate neighbors with life-changing services dedicated to ending and preventing homelessness.
  • Volunteer: Carpenter’s Shelter could not operate without our volunteers. With over 1,200 volunteers donating more than 17,000 hours every year, volunteers make up 8 full-time staff members. Please consider joining this dynamic community of volunteers who support the shelter 365 days of the year from 7 a.m.-11 p.m.
  • Advocate: Communities change when people are concerned, informed and involved. Please consider spreading the word about Carpenter’s Shelter by sharing with your family, friends and community how Carpenter’s is proactively working to end homelessness.
