Your support in action

A Twin Oaks resident is helping the nine school-age children living at the shelter start the school year. 

Glauri coordinated a school supply drive for the students, and is also organizing donations of clothing and shoes as the kids head back to the classroom while living in the homeless shelter.

What we're learning this month

Twin Oaks residents participate in mandatory workshops during their stay. These workshops supplement our one-on-one case management to ensure families are ready to move past their housing crisis.

In September, our focus is budgeting. Residents are evaluating where their money is going, learning to stretch their grocery budget, and finding the best ways to build credit.

Have a workshop idea? Call us at (262) 882-3662.
