All donors that donate $10 or more will receive a free OTS-B magnet!
All monetary donations are welcome! We have been blessed by the generosity of donors who believe in our mission. Off The Streets has no paid staff, no office, and minimal overhead. Except for insurance, our overhead is relatively minor. All other funds that are contributed go directly toward the support of our mission. We have found that it costs approximately $1500-$1800 to get a homeless person off the streets in the greater Bridgeport area.
If you would like to make a donation in memory of someone, please use the form below, or send a check and write “In Memory Of” in the memo.
If you would like to send the contributions by mail, please send your tax-deductible contribution to Off The Streets Bridgeport at the address listed on our Contact Us page.
Off The Streets works with area landlords and property managers who deal with low-income clients to place the homeless into rooms/small apartments. Assistance with space is most needed!
If you know of available space for our clients, please contact us.
Household Goods Donation
OTS provides basic household goods (small- and medium-sized furniture, bedding, mattresses, bedside tables, lamps, etc.) to help give our clients a fresh start. We will not accept large items such as couches, TVs, love seats, big comfy chairs, king-size beds, china cabinets or large dining room tables. If you are interested in donating furniture, please contact us.
