Give the gift of shelter. Join our Five Bucks A Month Club.

The Coalition for the Homeless relies on the generosity of donors to serve our homeless population during their neediest moments.

We administer the White Flag Program, a partnership effort between us and three of our member agencies who provide emergency shelter: Salvation Army, St. Vincent de Paul, and Wayside Christian Mission.

A White Flag day is any day where the temperature dips below 35 degrees in the winter or rises above 95 degrees in the summer. On these days, our member shelters open their doors and exceed their normal capacity to ensure that people have a safe place to stay out of the elements.

Our Five Bucks A Month Club helps fund the White Flag program. If you commit $5 a month on a recurring basis, you’ll cover our costs to get one person off the streets and into shelter for one night of extreme weather each month. 

To donate, click here, enter $5 in the “Other” bubble, then check the box that says “Show my support by making this a recurring donation,” and then choose “monthly” to make a recurring donation at $5 each month. Be sure to also enter “Five Bucks A Month” or “Operation White Flag” in the “Notes” section if you would like to designate your gift as such before submitting the form.

Thank you for your investment in the Coalition. We couldn’t do what we do without you.
