Monetary – You can make monetary donations by clicking on the ‘Donate’ button in the menu. One-time donations or reoccurring monthly donations are an option.

Volunteers – Do you have a special skill set that might be helpful? Would you like to pick up donations or possibly deliver them? Send us a message and let us know.

Sponsorships – Multiple sponsorships are available. Corporations, foundations or individuals are able to sponsor events for the group homes we partner with. You can also sponsor a child for back-to-school or the holidays.

On-going support for items needed – You can support foster children and families directly by answering Second Bridge’s Call-to-Action requests. These are requests that come in unique for a specific child. Here are our 5 most recent requests:
