Thank You!

Donations of Goods
Our friends and neighbors come to us because they are in crisis and in need of a hand up to enter stable housing. Often, they are starting from scratch.  We accept electronics and household items that can help furnish an apartment for a single adult or family moving into housing of their very own…but we ask that you please call ahead to make sure these items are currently needed before bringing them to the Coalition.

Goods may be delivered to the main office from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday-Friday (except between noon and 1pm when we are closed for lunch). For additional information, large donations, or if your group wishes to organize a donation drive, please contact us at dbowman<at>bigbendhc.org or call (850) 792-9426

Thanks for being a hero to the men, women and children who are experiencing homelessness in our community. It’s because of you that we’re ending homelessness everyday one person, one family at a time.

Thank you,
