More Ways to Get Involved

> Like us on Facebook.
> Make a financial donation to Second Home. Select “Second Home” from the bulleted list on our secure donation page. Following this step, you will have an opportunity to specify your particular service area by including the school district name in the donor intent box. This will ensure that your gift goes the Second Home service area of your choice; otherwise donations will be directed to the Second Home general fund.
> Organize a fundraiser, with the proceeds to go to Second Home.
> Invite us to speak to your group or organization.
> Ask your employer if they have any grants for which Second Home can apply, or if they'll offer matching donations for employees.
> Provide one of our students with a cell phone to make it easier to stay in touch with us and their home-providers.
> Help locate suitable jobs or internships for our students.
> Host a gathering for students, home providers, staff, and volunteers to have an opportunity to meet and socialize.
> Let us know about students and home-providers that are already living together, but might benefit from the structure Second Home has to offer.
> Donate money toward "special" student expenses, such as birthdays and holidays, prom, graduation, college applications, etc.
