Together We Make a Difference

Arcata House Partnership relies on community support, both through donations and volunteers to maintain our services. 

Monetary Donations

Your financial contribution is extremely important.

Arcata House Partnership is here to help people rebuild their lives, extending support to children, women and men experiencing the trauma of homelessness. While government grants cover about 75% of the costs, the work is only possible because of strong community involvement.  Community members, local churches and foundations, and clients rental payments account for the remaining 25%.  We are neighbors helping neighbors. 

In-kind donations

Currently there is a need for the following items:

  • Twin sheets

  • Twin/full size blankets

  • Bath towels and wash cloths

  • Outdoor and patio furniture – tables and chairs

  • Warm clothing

  • Coats

  • Sleeping mats

  • Sleeping bags

Please take donations to the Annex One Stop at 501 9th Street in Arcata, or call 707-633-6236 for more information.
