How you can stand with Breakthrough during the COVID-19 crisis

We have made additional adjustments to our volunteer guidelines to accommodate the “Stay at Home” order from the Governor. We will continue to keep our centers open, but to reduce potential exposure to the vulnerable guests, we are requesting alternative ways for donors and volunteers to support our programs.

Come alongside Breakthrough in the following ways:

Cater a Meal

Help support a local restaurant while ensuring the safety of our guests by catering a meal to our shelters. If you are interested in this opportunity and want information please email or look for an available date below.

Donate Kitchen Supplies
