Why Give?

End Homeless for Everyone 

Every person deserves the comfort and protection of a safe and affordable home. Many individuals who are chronically homeless are suffering from a serious mental illness which impacts their ability to find and maintain safe housing. Chronic homelessness is traumatic and often increases the symptoms of mental illness. Individuals experiencing homelessness are at higher risk of becoming victims of violence and having chronic health problems.

For many vulnerable people in our community, finding and keeping a home are out of reach without support from community members like you and organizations like Kim Wilson Housing. The reasons for homelessness are complex can vary by each individual. But the solution is simple - accessible, safe and affordable housing with caring support services that help people stay in their homes long-term. 

Donors like you help make this happen. Your generous support helps us find housing, prevents evictions, and gives our community members a fresh start in a safe and affordable home where they can live without fear. Our goal is to end homelessness, one person, one home, one gift at a time.
