Support Us: Donate Today

SSHC has worked hand in hand with individuals, families, organizations, businesses, political organizations, foundations and others who share our dedication to addressing the community’s needs. 


We need your help to provide hope and help for a promising future of our communities.


Whether its mental, physical, financial or spiritual support  we aspire to lead by example, and this dedication is reflected in the ethics and hard work of our board, staff members, volunteers, collaborating vendors and partners.


Strengthening people strengthens communities. And that’s what we endeavor to do at South Side Help Center.

As a nonprofit organization, South Side Help Center relies on the generosity of caring individuals to support our mission: to provide people with positive alternatives.

In today's world, where governmental sources of grants are receding, it is imperative that South Side Help Center has a base of private donations and contributions to sustain and enhance our current programs.

Why Contribute?

Perhaps you know someone who has been affected by HIV. Perhaps you know a victim of Family violence. Maybe you know someone who could use a mentor or tutor. Or it's possible you simply witness the growing violence in our community and want to do something to make it stop.

In keeping with our mission, South Side Help Center provides services to thousands of community residents each year. This is only made possible through gifts from individuals like you! Your gift, big or small, is valued and truly makes a difference! Contributions to South Side Help Center are typically tax-deductible; hence your donations may qualify you for tax relief for the fiscal year.


How Is My Donation Used?

If you prefer, contributions can be earmarked to benefit the costs of a specific program. Our contribution process is quite simple, and you will receive prompt recognition of your contribution that can serve as a receipt for tax deduction purposes.


Matching Gift Programs

Double or even triple the value of your gift with your employer's Matching Gift Program. Just ask your human resources department for matching from, send it to us, and we'll complete the paperwork.
