Year round, our tireless volunteers continue to support the guests we met during the Code Blue season and others who reach out – through community meals and other outreach efforts. This includes helping to secure needed identifications, providing gift cards for emergency meals, purchasing needed clothing for a job interview, financial support to get into housing, and more.
