Help End Homelessness

Thank you for your interest in SSOC and for your desire to help us Turn Lives Around. Together, we will realize our goal of ending homelessness in our community. Whether your contribution is of time, talent, or treasure – it will make an impact by helping us provide housing, support and employment services to those most in need.

Ways to Give

Annual Giving: You can contribute to a specific program or give a gift to support all of the programs and services that SSOC provides.
Recurring Gifts: A small recurring gift charged to your credit card can do great things! Gifts can recur weekly, monthly, quarterly, bi-annually, or annually. It’s a convenient, easy way to show your support for SSOC.
Planned Giving: Planned gifts can take many forms including bequests through your will, beneficiary designations, insurance, securities, or real estate. Consult your financial and legal advisors about the best way for you to make your gift.
Tribute and Memorial Gifts: Celebrate family and friends on their birthday or anniversary, say “Thank You” or “Congratulations”, or honor the life and memory of a loved one with a tribute or memorial gift.
Special Events: Sponsor, purchase a ticket to attend, or contribute needed goods or services to one of SSOC’s special events. You’ll not only have fun, but you’ll also be helping SSOC provide crucial programs and services.
