The link between affordable housing, hunger and development, especially in our children,
is connected to the level of income of individuals and families.



How to Help


The Debra Dynes Family House is always in need of food stuffs, services and various pieces of equipment. And of course, we can always make good use of cash donations, as well.

Please see our list of ongoing needs and we thank you for your support.
