Merry Christmas, I hope that today brings you joy and you are peaceful, and that love is surrounding you today. There are many people today that are not as fortunate as some. Many do have a permanent home, and some are on the streets. I am thankful this holiday season for the many charitable organizations that do help people in need this time of year.
Here is a list of charitable organizations that can help in a time of need if you know someone that needs help direct them to one of these places. It is always best to call ahead.

Many shelters have waiting lists. It is best to call ahead before going to them. Here is a list of shelters that are active.
