What We Need Now
Seasonal drives are crucial to helping us meet immediate needs. You can make an individual donation or host a community drive to collect items essential to this mission. One great way to give is via our Amazon.com Wish List - items will be shipped directly to us! If you'd like to plan farther ahead, check out our upcoming drives calendar.
Current Drive: Holiday Drive
Homeless youth face challenges no one should have to face: finding food, shelter, basic services, the list goes on. During the holidays, there’s the added emotional toll of being without family. At YouthCare we work hard to create a feeling of home for our young people, through preparing meals together, decorating the house or celebrating the holidays. Our Holiday Drive aims to provide not only what our young people need, like new socks and underwear, but perhaps also a gift that they really want, such as headphones, movie tickets, or new sneakers. You can help bring more joy this season by donating any of the following items — or hosting a drive to collect them.
