502cares is excited to announce that we are partnering with UP for Women and Children for our next community project. UP is a drop-in day center that provides comprehensive services for homeless women and children: a safe space, showers, laundry, access to a restroom, phone, mailing address, help obtaining vital documents and case management. We will be working with the clients at UP who are transitioning into housing to provide nonperishable food items, toiletries, and cleaning supplies to “stock the pantry” in an effort to combat food insecurity for these newly housed residents and in hopes to assist in ending their homelessness.
