Join our community of care this Giving Tuesday

This year has marked an incredible milestone with the remodel of our home. When we embarked on this mission to reclaim Black space in a rapidly gentrifying area, we did not know a global pandemic would magnify the systemic inequities our communities experienced.

As much of the world moves on, the ripple effects created by the pandemic continue to reach more families. With our newly renovated space, our roots remain strong and our foundation of Black-led community care sustains us to continue providing the essential services our neighbors need.

Just as community care helped build our new forever home, community care is what will help us be a safehouse that our neighbors can turn to and rely on.

When you make a gift by Giving Tuesday, you join our community of care, ensuring we can continue to provide support, space and service with dignity, respect and consideration.
