Wish List

We like to provide all of the following to our guests. Knowing our biggest needs are housing and employment, all of these things help to lessen the cost burden they are facing. Anything you can provide will help. We all thank you!
In 2013, HomePlate provided an unprecedented number of resources because of the support from out community. Read more about our impact.
All donations can be dropped off from 11a-3p Mondays and Thursdays at our office (332 NE 6th Ave, Hillsboro).

HomePlate appreciates all of the donations we receive, but do have limited storage for our resources. We therefore regularly clean-out items (with the help of our volunteers) such as clothes and household goods, that have not been recently requested/taken by youth and recycle these items through our local GivSmart program. This program keeps items out of landfills, raises funds for HomePlate, AND most importantly, ensures we can keep a strategic and thoughtfully supplied stock of our necessary resources available for youth in our community. You can also participate in GivSmart as an individual and benefit HomePlate as well - see their website for more information
