Ways to Give

SOME relies on private donations to provide services to thousands of poor and homeless adults and children each year. More than half of SOME's annual contributions come from individual donors.

Your support helps SOME provide food for the hungry and homeless, medical care for the sick, safe, affordable housing for families and single adults, and other services that protect and transform the lives of the homeless and poor in our community.

Because of SOME's low overhead costs, you have the confidence of knowing that your contribution will go to help those most in need. There are many ways to give.
