Donate and Volunteer

Make a donation. Change a life.

Your Support Matters

When you choose to support Huck House with your time and resources, we can provide guidance and assistance to the people in our community who need it most. Donations and volunteers help make a difference between a life of violence, abuse, and poverty, and a life that is productive, meaningful, and fulfilling.

Our work impacts young people who are dealing with difficult and devastating situations who sincerely want to improve their lives—but have no one to show them how. With your help, we can be that lifeline and source of trusted support that so many young people in our community dearly need. 

Huck House counts on the generosity of countless individuals and organizations that want to give young people a chance to start making positive choices that lead to a better life. Here’s a look at how your donation can help.

  • A donation of $50 buys 12 daily bus passes so teens can get to school and work.
  • A donation of $100 provides a family counseling session at our Center.
  • A donation of $200 purchases a day’s worth of nutritious meals for all the teens in our shelter.
  • A donation of $500 finances a full week of parenting skills mentorship for our teen parents.
  • A donation of $1,000 helps a homeless youth get set up in an apartment of his or her own.
