Best Way To Make A Difference
Is In The Lives Of Others
SERVING THE COMMUNITY FOR OVER 10 YEARS PROVIDING FOR FAMILIES AND CHILDREN IN NEED AND HOMELESS INDIVIDUALS.
GIVE A HELPING HAND TO THOSE WHO NEED IT!
We are a group of people here in Stevens Point on a mission to build our community by assisting those in need among us, and encouraging others to get involved. We run programs such as The Place of Peace (community meal for those in need), the Kids Closet (children’s clothing pantry), Tree Huggers (scarf project to keep the homeless and people struggling with poverty warm), and the Warming Center (winter sleeping shelter for the homeless).
CHARITY IS A VIRTUE OF THE HEART,
& NOT OF THE HANDS
Place of Peace
Homelessness is on the rise in the country, and this includes Stevens Point. Because of this steady rise, the Hope Center has often been at capacity and people have been sleeping unsheltered. Keeping these people off the streets, out of jail, and safe is not easy and needs the support of volunteers like you.
One of our co-chairs, Tiffani, is a mother of five children, as well as a foster parent in our local community. During a Place of Peace meal she was noticing children were attending in clothing that was either torn, tattered, or just didn’t fit. Having five kids herself, she could only image what low income and single parent households must deal with when the monkeys grow like palm trees! Inspired she started gathering all of the gently used kids closthes she could find.
Located at the public library in Stevens Point, a colorfully dressed tree stands. Wrapped in scarves, hats, and mittens of all sizes and colors each has a simple note that states, “I am not lost. If you are cold, please take me to keep warm.”

Your Donation Can Change Someone’s Life
Not only do we need volunteers to help us run the programs, but we also need funding. Food, materials, shelter, water, electricity and more all costs money. If you can’t volunteer, please consider donating; or why not do both! No amount is too small and every amount will always be graciously accepted.
Become A Proud Volunteer Now
We love to meet people with the same interests as ours, plus we could use all of the volunteers we can get for all of our events. If you would like to volunteer please fill out the form below and we’ll be in touch to see how we can use you. We would like to thank you for your interest in advance. We just simply cannot run our programs without people like you who are willing to donate some time, even if it’s for an hour or two.
