Everyone Should Have a Gift To Open at Christmas
Over 20 years ago, we created our Christmas Wish Project to make sure that children, teens, adults, and seniors receive a real present, selected just for them. Each year we identify about 1,000 individuals who are served by Volunteers of America who may not receive a Christmas gift.
Who are they? A child in our Mentoring Children of Promise Program who has an incarcerated parent; a person or a family receiving assistance from our Behavioral Health Services Program; a person with intellectual disabilities in our Residential Community Living home; a once homeless Veteran who now resides at our Veterans Transitional Housing Facility; or a low-income senior living at one of our affordable apartment communities.

Senior Residents Live Independently
The Terraces on Tulane is just one of our many apartment communities designed for low-income seniors. Residents are encouraged to be independent, but often do not have extra discretionary funds. Donations of cleaning products, gift cards to buy groceries, and new linens are always welcomed.
Veterans Transition To Permanent Housing
Volunteers of America serves homeless male veterans in our transitional housing program. Veterans in this program have a high rate of success in rebuilding their lives. More than 78 percent achieve the target outcome of residential stability, increased skill/income level and greater self-determination. With that success these individuals are in need of some basics necessities when they move into their permanent housing. If you would like to donate household items such as dishes, pots, bed and bath linens, or grocery gift cards, your help is greatly needed.
