Host a Donation Drive

The Amara Emergency Sanctuaries are two temporary homes for kids to stay in for up to three days, immediately after they are removed from their homes by Child Protective Services. An alternative to waiting in an office or police station, our Emergency Sanctuaries are staffed with warm, welcoming staff and volunteers who are focused on caring for kids during this traumatic time.

Often, kids at the Amara Emergency Sanctuaries arrive with just one or two belongings in a trash bag. Sometimes, they arrive with nothing at all. The donations you provide support these kids. Every child that stays at one of our two Sanctuaries leaves with three weather and age-appropriate outfits and a nice bag or backpack to carry their belongings.

Support this work by hosting a donation drive at your school, office, church, or temple!
