In The Image is dedicated to helping families of our very own community in a crisis situation. This might be due to homelessness, loss of job, natural disaster, and so many other difficult situations. We are only able to help them because of YOU! We respect the families we serve and try to give them a dignified experience at ITI. To help make their house a home, please think of giving items in good condition, new or gently used. We are unable to accept items that are broken, ripped, or soiled. We hope that our families will be proud of their new home with the items they have received from you!

Our donation times are Monday - Friday 9am to 4pm and Saturday 9am to 12pm. Please do not leave donations unattended on our property after donation hours. We appreciate your understanding, cooperation, and of course your gifts!

Every piece of clothing, diaper, couch, pot, or pan makes a difference at In The Image and the people we serve. Thank you for helping to provide the basics in life for our clients.
