Back to School Drive

As the children served by FACETS’ programs return to school, they need your help! Our most vulnerable and marginalized neighbors – those experiencing homelessness, low-immigrants and refugees, the unemployed and low-wage workers – face great economic challenges and uncertainty this school year.

Together, we can help to ease the financial back-to-school burden faced by our families and provide the children we serve with the supplies they need to create stronger futures.

With your support, we can meet our goal of distributing 400 backpacks!
