Positive Charities

 

Here you will find organizations that specialize in teaching people how to fish for themselves instead of just providing fish. Which means they usually offer some educational and vocational opportunities in addition to the other services they provide their clients.

Coventant House

Covenant House relies almost entirely on gifts from friends across North America to help over 50,000 kids who come to us each year for care. We provide food, clothing, shelter, medical attention, educational and vocational training and counseling to kids who literally have nowhere else to turn. 

We are open 24-hours-a-day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. No kid is ever turned away. Never, ever! Without your support we would simply be unable to care for these kids. Please, please help if you can. Their lives depend on it!

You can help in a number of ways including making a donation, volunteering your time, attending our events, even shopping in our on-line store!

You might also enjoy reading about our donors, volunteers, and fundraising events in our Family News newsletter.

Habitat for Humanity International
 

Since 1976, Habitat has built more than 95,000 houses in more than 60 countries, including some 30,000 houses across the United States.

Habitat houses are purchased by the homeowner families. Three factors make Habitat houses affordable to low-income people worldwide:

  • Houses are sold at no profit, with no interest charged on the mortgage.
  • Homeowners and volunteers build the houses under trained supervision.
  • Individuals, corporations, faith groups and others provide financial support.

Habitat for Humanity's work is organized at the local level by more than 1,900 affiliates worldwide. Affiliates coordinate house building and select partner families.

Homeowner families are chosen according to their need; their ability to repay the no-profit, no-interest mortgage; and their willingness to work in partnership with Habitat.

Habitat for Humanity does not discriminate according to race, religion or ethnic group. Please visit us online www.habitat.org

Welcome to Goodwill Industries International, Inc.

 

Goodwill Industries is about people working.

We have witnessed the power of work to transform lives. Work helps build self-confidence, friendship, independence, creativity, trust, empowerment. 

Everyone deserves a chance to have these things in life.

Goodwill Industries provides people with the tools they need to succeed in working. We are one of the world's largest nonprofit providers of employment and training services for people with disabilities and other disadvantaging conditions such as welfare dependency, illiteracy, criminal history and homelessness.

Goodwill was founded in 1902 in Boston by Rev. Edgar Helms, a Methodist minister. Helms collected used household goods and clothing in wealthier areas of the city, then trained and hired poor people and immigrants to mend and repair the used goods. 

The goods were then resold or were given to the people who repaired them. The system worked, and the Goodwill philosophy of "a hand up, not a hand out" was born.
