You can help Street2Feet provide vital services to people experiencing homelessness. Street2Feet is the only day shelter and outreach program for adults who are homeless or facing homelessness in Monroe County. Your support continues to make sure our clients will always have a place to go.
Without Street2Feet, our community will experience an increase in emergency room visits, incarcerations, and loitering in our public parks and streets. Research shows that providing assistance like the services found at Street2Feet to someone experiencing homelessness results in reduced utilization of publicly funded systems such as police, hospital, emergency and inpatient services, and the correctional systems.
To keep our doors open and to make an essential impact in our community we continue to host fundraisers and accept donations, with generous support coming from Sanofi Pasteur, Hughes Family Foundation, Jordon Endowment Fund and Wells Fargo. You can help Street2Feet Outreach Center provide vital services to people experiencing homelessness, including case management; linkage to mental health services; linkage to Drug & Alcohol services; medical clinic; dental clinic; GED instruction; and vocational support.
