In addition to monetary support, your donations of necessary items (gifts in-kind) provide our residents resources to turn housing into home. When you donate items to Deborah’s Place, you facilitate independence and well-being for women in Chicago who’ve experienced homelessness.

We use RightGift and Amazon Wishlists, so there’s no guessing needed on your part: we upload a list of what’s needed, and generous supporters like you know exactly how best to help. Click the button at the bottom of the lists to shop and donate directly.
