Our mission

Project KIND 123 creates opportunities and builds support systems for those experiencing homelessness. We believe in strengthening our community through kindness and helping those who are in need to achieve their goals.

Through our mobile street outreach team, we provide food, needed items, mentoring, emergency/temporary housing, information, referrals to assisted programs, encouragement and support.

Our goal is to help those experiencing homelessness by providing the supports that will allow them to focus on their strengths and purpose while overcoming their challenges and circumstance so they are able to get off the street. We do this through kindness and lending a helping hand.

We encourage others from our community to get involved and spread kindness by offering a volunteer program for all ages that engages with our community through our outreach projects, highlighting kindness and sharing stories. We encourage others to come together and share love, resources, time, talents and knowledge.
