  • I have filled out the form to volunteer but haven't heard anything. I can deliver prescriptions, food, etc. I have shampoo (mostly new). I can also help with childcare at your home!

  • Hello! I'm a Lorain County resident looking to provide financial assistance to people affected by the coronavirus -- specifically for rent, utilities, etc. Wondering whether you're seeing those kinds of requests and what your service area is?

    If not -- wondering if there are other orgs. doing mutual aid work that you can direct me to?

  • Hi there, I’m in contact with a disabled mother who needs help getting toilet paper and tissues. She filled out a form but never heard back. Could somebody touch base with her?

    If you submit a donation request, we will have someone reach out to you with more details.

  • Hi Amy-Z,

    We currently have a very large volume of requests, and few donors who are able to fill them. We do not currently have anyone able to give toilet paper and tissues, however, as soon as we do, we will touch base with her.

    Best wishes
