The organization partners with the Thirtieth Street Shelter and Mama’s Place Food Pantry to ensure transitional needs are met. The stay in transitional housing is up to 2 years.

Medical Clinic

The People First Medical Clinic offers appointment-based and drop-in medical services, including vaccinations, annual physicals, and screenings. Clinic services are provided at no cost or on a sliding-fee scale. Staff can consult with the social work team to provide interdisciplinary care. The Medical Clinic is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Donate Your Time and Skills

Throughout the year, we engage in projects with the help of volunteers who donate their time and skills. In the past, these projects have included fundraising campaigns, grounds cleanup and beautification, food drives (in partnership with Mama’s Place Food Pantry), and professional clothing drives for our Employment and Life Skills clients.

Donate Money

As a nonprofit organization, we rely on donations from individuals as well as government and private entities. One of the grants we have counted on for many years has been eliminated, leaving us with the potential decision to decrease services. To avoid that scenario, we need to make up the difference through donations. You can support us by giving via the button below.
