Making Everyday Life Brighter

Thank you for making the needs (not wants!) of our families come true.  The support we receive all year is tremendous. Scroll down to see a list of ideas to support the mothers and children we house, educate, and/or provide childcare services.


Donate Food/Clothes/Furniture or Organize a Donation Drive

We are grateful for your interest in supporting our women and children with new and gently used items! Please submit a list of the items (and pictures, if possible) that you would like to donate to the York Street Project. Someone will get back to you within 24 hours to confirm your offer and to discuss details regarding quantity, availability, and delivery.

Organizing a donation drive is a great way to get your friends involved, too.  Please fill out the form so a York Street Project staff member can help you design a drive that will have the greatest impact for our families.

Due to limited storage capacity, we must prioritize our acceptance of donations by what is needed by our families at the time and therefore cannot accept all donations. Please do not drop off any items without first speaking to a staff member. We appreciate your understanding. Thank you!


Providing these items helps us direct our limited resources to ensuring an environment focused on healing and care.

Visit our Amazon Wish List page to understand the items of continual need for our families. The items on these lists are essential and everyday items that our families often go without because many are not covered by Food Stamps. They comprise of items that our staff uses to provide food, housing, education, and childcare needs and also items that our families use when they transition from our housing to a place of their own.  You can print out a copy of the wish list, too.


Support us twice by designating York Street Project as your Amazon Smile charity of choice. A percentage of your purchase will be donated back to YSP. Learn how to sign-up for Amazon Smile here.
