Gifts and Care Packages

Families, churches and resident supporters are welcome to send a group gift or donation in honor of an individual resident, to be shared with fellow residents, as often as desired. Residents do not receive care packages or gifts individually. 


We may serve teens with severe allergies and past traumas. For safety reasons, we screen incoming donations and request that givers make arrangement with the site prior to sending gifts and packages.
