Ways to Help

The support of individual donors is vital to the work we do at Foothill Family Shelter. There are many ways to support Foothill Family Shelter and the homeless families in our community. We serve over 8,000 individuals every year and we rely solely on our community to keep our pantry stocked. Donations are vital and no donation is ever too small! If you are interested in giving back, please contact Yelitza, our Help Desk Coordinator, at (909) 920-0453 or yelitza@foothillfamilyshelter.org
