Wish List Contributions 

Thank you to everyone who supports our teens with in-kind and volunteer donations! Donating items from our wish list is an easy way to help us off-set our costs.  Perfect for individuals, families and groups who want to give back to their community.  Donations may be dropped off Tuesday - Sunday from 12:00 - 6:00 at our Runaway and Homeless Youth Shelter at 3080 Broadway.  You can download the wish list here. 

Visit our wish list on amazon.com to view specific items we need and have them shipped directly to Attention Homes.

We no longer accept used clothing donations (except for a few specific items).  We have developed a partnership with A Precious Child’s clothing bank where we can collect just the items our kids need.

We are seeking individuals and groups to help fulfill Wish List needs and/or assemble items. Volunteers are also needed to help prepare and serve meals during the day when our drop-in is open and to work on the streets with our Street Outreach Team.

If you can help we ask that you contact us at 303.447.1206 or shorn@attentionhomes.org. Please ensure Wish List items are still needed prior to hosting a collection drive or delivering them to Attention Homes.
