Support Our Work

All of our work in Joseph’s People is done entirely by volunteers. We have no Director and no paid staff of any kind. Our Chapters are supported by the generosity of individual volunteers and the church or parish they reside in.

Although our needs are simple, we can use your help financially. We provide food and gas cards to help people who may have entirely exhausted their unemployment and their savings. In the winter, we make one-time $300 payments to families to help them keep the heat on in their homes. Being un/underemployed in these times is truly a deep and deadly hardship.

Here are some ways you can help us financially
