Community members worked with outreach staff to provide vacation assistance to individuals and families in Matt Talbot’s housing programs, which use evidence-based and compassionate service delivery models that include case management and assistance in finding quality affordable housing. Customers received assistance with basic needs, transportation, furniture, clothing and Christmas gifts for their children.

“Everyone deserves a special celebration during this season of giving and hope,” said Susanne Blue, Executive Director. “This year, more than ever, it has been wonderful to see the positive response from the community and the gratitude of those who are helped.”

Gift card donations of any amount to local grocery stores, restaurants, gas stations, Walmart or Target are always required to accommodate customers. Cards can be mailed to Matt Talbot or dropped off between 8:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
