Providing a Lifeline

Stabilizing basic needs is the first and most important step in changing lives.


Who We Are

Our Mission

Through kindness, compassion, and respect, we ensure people who are houseless have their basic needs met- to survive, thrive, and connect to community resources.

Our programs

We provide mobile outreach, food, showers, hygiene supplies and connection to community resources and services.

Core values

As a community we are accountable to ensure all people are treated with dignity and respect. All people deserve to be valued, cared for, and have their basic needs met.

supporting people where it matters

Providing support, hope, and inspiration to end the cycle of homelessness.

Mobile Outreach

Through Jewels mobile bus and meal programs, we have served over 55,000 meals to families and individuals over the past year. We provide meals for non-profits and shelters whose budgets are severely strained, as well as serving food at key locations across the community each week to thousands of people.

Shower Trailer

Health and disease prevention is crucial to addressing core needs for people who are homeless. Jewels acquired and updated a mobile shower trailer with four private shower units. Numerous organizations host the shower trailer in key locations every week to offer clean clothes, towels, hygiene supplies, and of course- hot showers. There are very limited shower options for people who are homeless, yet it is an important public health need to reduce the spread of diseases and maintain overall health.

Our motto

Change lives, give hope

With your contribution Jewels will continue and expand mobile outreach, food delivery, shower trailer, and collaborations and partnerships with community resources and services! By stabilizing basic needs and effective connection to community services, people will be able to end the cycle of their homelessness.

Mobile Outreach and connection to community resources
