Help us Complete The O’Reilly Family Campus

Help us complete the O’Reilly Family Campus so we can continue to end homelessness for hundreds of people each year. The Sam F. and June S. Hamra Family Support Services building is home to our case management teams, housing support office, staff nurse, and donation center. The Emergency Shelter includes 14 apartments designed to lessen the trauma associated with becoming homeless.

Become a Key Maker

Housing is the key to ending homelessness.

When you become a monthly donor, you provide the key to safe, affordable housing for someone in our community.  Key Makers are monthly donors committed to The Kitchen, Inc’s mission to bring stability and purpose to people who are homeless. Key Makers understand the importance of supportive services including case management, life skills and education.
