How to Help

SELF Inc. aims to create transitional housing that not only provides a roof for youth (18-24) but also offers support, warmth, and resources to help them rebuild their lives.

We are constructing a comfortable and secure space with efficiency-style apartments, common areas, and essential amenities that foster an environment of dignity and respect. We have listed some of these amenities on Amazon, Walmart and Target and hope that you will donate items or make a tax-deductible donation that will go directly toward maintaining this transitional housing.
