CREATING HOUSING OPPORTUNITIES:

Over 35-thousand people have come to the Senator Philip D. Lewis Center since it opened in 2012. While they have been able to find help and hope, we cannot house them all. We need your help! Our Creating Housing Opportunities Program allows us to provide immediate housing to individuals and families.

  • $5,300 provides housing for three months for a homeless family
  • $1,200 provides housing for two months for a homeless individual
  • $225 provides a 25% rent subsidy for one month

BREAKING BREAD, BREAKING BARRIERS:

This meal program gives local businesses, church groups and private donors the opportunity to sponsor and/or serve meals to the 70 homeless men and women staying at the Senator Philip D. Lewis Center. This program not only nourishes the guests, who are seeking to change their lives, but also creates awareness about homeless issues and increases the community’s interaction with the center.

Meal costs:

  • Breakfast $125
  • Lunch $175
  • Dinner Starting at $350

WARM WELCOME KITS:

Lewis Center they receive a “Warm Welcome Kit.” Each kit contains: a clean t-shirt & socks, toiletries including shampoo/conditioner, baby wipes, a toothbrush &toothpaste, a comb and a facecloth.

Important things to keep in mind:

  • During these unprecedented times, the safety and health of our donors as well as our clients, volunteers and staff is of utmost importance to us. Hence we require:
    • Wearing of face masks at all times while on our properties
    • Maintaining Social distancing
  • Due to space limitations we cannot and do not accept donations at the Lewis Center Annex.
  • Due to space limitations we cannot and do not accept donations at our WPB Datura Street location.
  • Under no circumstances, leave your donation exposed to the weather and sprinkler system outside of the donation center as this typically renders your donation useless.
  • Please package all your donations in bags (trash bags are fine) or boxes.
  • Please do not pack the individual bags/boxes too heavy as we are dealing quite frequently with volunteers incapable of lifting more than about 25lbs.
  • Due to space limitations we cannot accept furniture donations, please contact us if you wish to donate such.

When arriving at the property, please make an immediate right and drive around the building to the back. After you pass the 1st building you’ll notice our sign “Homeless Coalition Donation Center” on your left. This is where you find us.
