Many individuals come to our shelters with nothing. Thanks to the generosity of the community, HomeFirst is able to provide them with basic necessities at no cost. The items listed here are needed year-round. Special needs are listed on our Facebook page on Wednesday mornings.
For questions regarding any donations of goods or to schedule a donation drive, please email Elizabeth Griswold or call (408) 539-2143.
