How You Can Help

We can only continue to help our clients and your neighbors through the generous involvement of our community. You can make a difference in the lives of our client residents by:

  • Becoming a  Volunteer
  • Making Donations
  • Sponsoring a Fundraiser

McHenry House Tracy Family Shelter is currently looking for someone like you to be a volunteer. If you have a caring heart and a few free hours, please call Armenia or Helen at (209) 835-2328. There are many ways in which you can help, and nobody is too young or too old. The homeless have many needs, and they can only be solved if we work together. Here are some of the ways you can help and make a difference in someone life.

Donations of clothing, household goods and furniture are accepted at the McHenry House office, 757 A Street.
Fundraising Teams

If you enjoy being involved in event planning, this is for you. Join our team as a committee member and participate in planning and coordinating annual events to raise funds to support our programs and services.

Children's Activities

You can make a difference in the life of a child. Help our parents as they attend workshops and seminars by helping with the Homework Club.
