How to Donate:

Donate Funds

The Sixth Street Shelter compassionately thanks you in advance for your kindness and generosity.

To provide our essential services to our community, for just one family to live at our shelter and utilize our critical resources for 30, 60, to 90 days, it costs $3,300, $7,000, and $10,000!

Your contribution can go towards helping us provide a family with a furnished apartment, case management, and supportive services. 

Become a
Monthly Donor

Giving monthly is the most effective way to give. No matter the size of your donation, your gift ensures continued financial support of Sixth Street Shelter and empowers us to continue our work. Give today.

Support our Butterfly Fundraising Initiative

The four different colored butterflies represent generous donation amounts. ALL donation funds go towards strengthening our programming, constructing critical resources through our Family Resource Center, and improving and maintaining apartments so our families know they matter, have a purpose, and are beautiful!

Please support us through our Butterfly Fundraising Initiative by purchasing a beautiful butterfly that will be displayed on our lobby wall with a personalized nameplate stated as you wish.

Adopt an Apartment!

This vital program was created to meet the upkeep of one of our 25 shelter apartments by pairing your group with one apartment for 12 months. Each apartment houses an average of six families (with children) every year. The program offers flexibility and is tailored to your group’s skills and availability. Your group will receive a nameplate outside the apartment door.
