We rely on donations from people like you!
Sustain us by giving monthly
The Worker Center depends on people like you keep us running. We ask that all members of Sanctuary in The Streets consider becoming monthly Sustainers or making yearly pledges to support our work. Anything you can give goes a long way here. We are grateful to those who pledge $4/month, to those who give $40 a year and to those whose gifts are much larger or in between.
Until 2018, we ran the workers centers with a team of 5 on less than 70 paid hours a week. Now, we are a collective of 6 working 140 paid hours a week (and much more), coordinating the people power of thousands.
Sustain our work. Just check “Make this a recurring donation”.
We are a 501(c)(3) with fiscal sponsorship provided by Warren J. Plaut Charitable Trust. All donations are tax-deductible.

Money is just one way to give--and we recognize that many people don't have much of it to spare. There are many other ways to support our work.
We hate asking people for money and are always trying to think of creative ways to cover our expenses. Do you know any caterers or restaurant owners that might be willing to donate food for our Worker Committee meetings? Do you know any carpenters who might be open to building some shelves in our office? Hook us up!
