Helping America's most vulnerable®

Every year, we help almost 1.3 million people.

Your kindness and generosity will be a welcome gift to someone in need, like Korean War veteran Emmitt pictured above. Your gift may provide such necessities as shelter and food and such life-renewing assistance as rehabilitation and counseling.
