Volunteer & Donations

Donations & Volunteers

Our mission at Well House is very simple: we believe that the solution to homelessness is housing. We are committed to ending homelessness in our community by providing safe, permanent, and low-cost housing to those in need. You can join us in our mission to end homelessness by making a donation or volunteering.

We are continually on a mission to purchase new homes and new land plots. Every tax-deductible contribution gets us closer to providing safe, affordable shelter for one more person. Make a one-time donation or join our Seedlings Club to offer a reoccuring gift.
Please visit Amazon Smile to see our most recent Wish List – these items help us prepare our houses for our tenants to move in. We are always looking for new or gently used items to make our houses homes.

Each new Well House home needs to be furnished. Your new, or gently used goods are greatly appreciated. Donations can be dropped off at 600 Cass SE, Monday- Thursday, from 1pm until 4pm. Please contact us if a different time is necessary.

Help us fix up houses to provide more homes. Regardless of your skill level, there are always tasks that need to be accomplished, from routine maintenance to major renovation.

Urban Farming

From planting to harvest, weeding to watering, many hands are needed to grow the food that comprises 25% of the food that comes to the table.
