Betty has immeasurably impacted Humboldt County as she provides a learning center, transitional housing, kids programs, street outreach, case management, commercial kitchen, stabilization services, and guidance into careers for the homeless, as well as many other support programs for the often marginalized in our community. All funding for Betty comes in the form of community donations and grants. This fundraiser will greatly help Betty and her staff continue to provide much needed services to ensure the welfare of our community. Food courtesy of Rita’s Margaritas & Mexican Grill!


Ways to Give

For over 30 years, Betty Chinn and her supporters have worked to serve people experiencing homelessness in Eureka and Humboldt County. We are grateful to all who have joined in supporting our work through offering prayers, volunteer hours, and donations. We look forward to continuing to make a difference in Humboldt County, knowing that we are supported by the love of our giving community.

We need the help from our donors on an ongoing basis. Whether you give during the holidays, dedicate a memorial gift, or remember us in your will, no monetary donation is too small, no gift unappreciated.
