You can be the key to ending homelessness. Your gift to The Kitchen provides a safe home for someone in need and the support to regain stability.

Safe, Affordable Housing

Safe, affordable housing is the key to ending homelessness. Helping people get back into permanent housing is the first step towards long-term stability. Once housed, people can focus on overcoming the barriers that led to homelessness.

Case Management & Support Services

The Kitchen, Inc. provides services to families, individuals, youth, seniors, and Veterans to make sure homelessness is rare, brief and nonrecurring for each of our clients. Case managers work with individuals to help them overcome the barriers that led to homelessness and connect them to resources in the community that will allow them to achieve housing stability.

The O’Reilly Family Campus

In 2020, we left our longtime home on Commercial Street to move to the O’Reilly Family Campus. Our new facilities are designed to meet the unique needs of our clients and staff, and ensure we can continue to serve the community for years to come.
