Be a Top Chef

Donating dinner for either our Crisis Nursery or Teen House (or both!) saves the Agency much needed funds and frees up counselors to spend more quality time with our residents.

Dinner Donors can make the meal and drop if off or have it delivered.

If you are interested in providing dinner, please follow the steps below.
