Support Us

Solutions at Work serves about 6,000 homeless and low-income people annually.  Our programs are at maximum capacity and we are in the heartbreaking position of having to turn people away.
Please make a financial contribution today.  With your support, we will help even more people achieve self-sufficiency.
Help Local Kids Prepare for School

Each year, Solutions at Work's Children's Clothing Exchange equips thousands of homeless and low-income children with clothing, books, toys, and gear at no charge.  Below are some simple ways you can help these kids prepare for and succeed in school this year.
