Rose Haven’s School Supplies Donation Program

Rose Haven provides homeless and at-risk kids (those experiencing trauma, poverty, and physical and mental health challenges) with much needed school supplies. Moreover, Rose Haven gears up women, children, and gender non-conforming folks with a variety of essential items such as backpacks, clothing,  hygiene supplies and more.

Restoring stability and dignity for 3,500 guests annually. More about Rose Haven here.

Oregon now has the 2nd highest rate of homelessness in the USA. Last school year, the state of Oregon reported 21,756 homeless students; 4,427 were in the Portland area.*

Being a kid is hard enough. Being a homeless kid is even harder. That is why we strive to provide brand new school supplies for the kids that rely on Rose Haven.

School supplies are expensive and cannot be purchased with food stamps. Each year the local community rallies so that Rose Haven can provide brand new school supplies and help kids in need succeed. We can’t do this alone, and we need your help to help restore dignity to families who are struggling.

Please help us spread the word. Put out a collection bin at your work, school, gym or place of worship and help us collect brand new school supplies this summer.
