How You Can Support Foothill Family Shelter...

 

It’s easy to feel disconnected from the crisis of homelessness, but the truth is we all have the ability to create change starting in our own backyard. Here are a few things you can do to make a difference.

 

  • Get Educated. Educate yourself and your family on homelessness and how you and your community can make a difference. Foothill Family Shelter services the cities of Upland, Claremont, Montclair, Ontario, Rancho Cucamonga, and Pomona. Let's bring our community together to discuss and address problems in our own backyard!

  • Be a Guest Speaker. Donate your professional skills and teach a L.E.A.R.N. workshop for the residents living in our shelter. For more information, e-mail jessica@foothillfamilyshelter.org.

  • Take a Tour. Call us at (909) 920-0453 to schedule a tour of Foothill Family Shelter. This is a great way to see first-hand how we serve and assist families in need.

  • Host a Drive. Our pantry is always in need of items such as non-perishable food, hygiene products, and so much more. Host and organize a drive to collect these critically-needed items. Contact yelitza@foothillfamilyshelter.org to coordinate! For a list of items we accept, click HERE.

  • Get your Company & Co-Workers Involved. – Gather your team and come up with creative ideas that can raise money or in-kind donations for Foothill Family Shelter. Support our special events or even host your own event on our behalf. Many companies have workplace giving programs and will often match an employee's contribution to a charity...you may have the opportunity to double your donation!

  • Make your Faith Matter. – If you are a member of a faith-based organization, call on the leaders and members of your congregation to combat homelessness! Host a food drive, volunteer, organize a service project, and more!

  • Donate Work Appropriate Clothing & Shoes. If you have business attire and/or shoes that no longer fit or that you simply never wear, consider donating them to us. We are proud to provide our families with work-appropriate clothing and shoes to help them find and maintain employment.

  • Get your Family & Friends Involved! Share these ideas with people you know. We ALL can work together to make a difference in the lives of families experiencing homelessness.
