Donate to Hearts & Homes for Youth

We strive to provide our children with everything they will need to feel emotionally healthy and academically strong. Donations and monetary contributions help to ensure that we can provide the youth in our care with the necessary clothing, school supplies, food, and services to get them on the right track toward building a successful life.

We kindly accept donations of in-kind items to benefit the youth in our group homes and independent living settings. Separated from family, friends, and the comfort of their own homes, our youth are assisted by the generosity of supporters who make their experience at our group homes that much more comfortable.

If you have in-kind items that you would like to donate, please call us at 301-679-1382 to discuss logistics.
