You can make a difference. Divine Rest, Inc. needs your help!

Your donations and support are very important to Divine Rest and it's mission. Without the generosity of individuals as yourself and local businesses, Divine Rest, Inc. would not be able to provide services to the homeless community.  Because of your support we have been able to keep our "Neighbors" hydrated during the summer months and warm during the winter months. Your monetary donations are aiding in helping us to secure funding for our "Hope for a Home" Project which will enable us to purchase a home to provide a safe, stable environment for single homeless women.  We appreciate your past donations and would appreciate your continued support to help make this dream come to fruition.

Your donation allows us to provide supplies to our "Neighbors" and build a nest egg to purchase a home to house single homeless women in a residential program!
