At Daily Bread we are partners on the journey out of homelessness. As a partner, our programs help address many of the issues that impact people experiencing homelessness. For our homeless neighbors, it is important for many reasons, including health and self-esteem, that they maintain cleanliness. Cleanliness helps prevent infection/disease and improves confidence and state of mind.
Every day, we provide:
Fresh clean clothes
Clean blankets, mats, and sleeping bags
Clean shoes and socks
We accepted donations of new or gently clothes (men & women of all sizes) toiletries, blankets, sleeping bags, shoes and socks.
Transitioning from living on the streets or in the woods to stable housing can be a challenging path with many roadblocks. As a partner on the journey, we provide transitional support services aimed at assisting our clients find a pathway home and eliminate many of the roadblocks along the way. Some clients find themselves without proper identification to secure a job or a place to live. Others, we assist in connecting them with a a friend or family member willing to welcome them into their home out of state and need the means to get there.
Our transitional support services include:
Assistance obtaining identification and/or birth certificate
Transportation support such as bikes and bus passes for reuniting our homeless neighbors with their family or friends for housing
Serve as an address for resumes and job applications, and as a mail stop
We believe in empowering our hungry and/or homeless neighbors rather than enabling them. Our clients have many opportunities to volunteer at Daily Bread, sharing what they have to offer and adding their “sweat-equity” as we seek to find a solution to their challenges together.
