You should bring 7-days worth of clothing. We have someone who will do your laundry weekly. Although we provide hygiene items, such as toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, and shampoo, you are more than welcome to bring your own. We also provide a pillow and bedding, but you can bring your own if you like.

You will get served three well-balanced meals per day, so you don’t necessarily need money.

Our counselors also take their clients to the local Dollar Tree where food or hygiene items can be purchased.
