In-Kind Donations

Gifts in-kind and in-kind donations help Homeward Bound further our mission, and bring resources to homeless families in Phoenix, Arizona. Many families arrive at Homeward Bound with just the clothes on their backs. Your in-kind gift can help provide them with food, clothing, and other household necessities so they can focus their efforts on their children, jobs, and family stability.
