Make a Contribution


Columbus House is a non-profit organization that collaborates with numerous social service and government agencies to help those in the greatest need. We are not a government agency. Each year, Columbus House must apply for federal, state, and municipal grants, and there are no guarantees and no automatic renewals.


The easiest way to help Columbus House continue our mission of helping those experiencing homelessness, identify and overcome those root causes that contributed to their homelessness, and get them back into housing is to make an unrestricted financial contribution. You can feel good knowing that you helped save a life by supporting Columbus House.
