See below on how you can help this most vulnerable population:
The Amy Collection Donations of toiletries, cleaning supplies, gift cards, etc.
Food donations: We are not equipped to accept donations of food directly. We work with Manna Food Bank for food boxes for our families. 850-432-2053 We also accept gift cards to local grocery stores or other monetary donations. Call Dawn Stone at 983-5237 for more information.

Backpacks4Teens A joint program with Manna Food Bank supplying backpacks with enough food for three days on the weekends for homeless, unaccompanied youth in Santa Rosa County. If you wish to help, please make monetary or food donations to Manna Food Bank. 850-432-2053
Clothing donations At this time, our program is not equipped to take donations of clothing (other than new, unopened packages of socks and underwear). However, we are very appreciative of gift cards in order to shop for students as needed. Please contact Dawn Stone at 983-5237 for more information. If you are interested in donating new or gently used clothing, contact Ferris Hill Baptist Church's clothing closet. 850-623-3500
GRADUATION!!! There are several expenses for graduation. In order for students to walk across that stage they must have a cap and gown and appropriate clothing/shoes. If you are interested in helping these students, please contact Dawn Stone at 983-5237.
College Day Field Trips Each year we take homeless/unaccompanied juniors and seniors on field trips to local post-secondary schools. Trips to Pensacola State Campuses (Pensacola, Milton, and Warrington), University of Florida (Satellite located on PSC Milton), University of West Florida, and Locklin Technical School. Students are bused to these locations, given a tour of the campus with programs and financial aid explanations, provided lunch, and then bused back to their schools. If you are interested in donating funds for these trips to offset the cost of buses and lunch, please contact Dawn Stone at 850-983-5237.
