Our mission is simple; to help you help the homeless. If you want to help the homeless without worrying about how your gifts will be spent, give our tokens instead. Tokens can be used to get inside for the night at City Team International, to purchase clothing and survival gear at Goodwill, food at local food carts, laundry at TPI, and even bikes and parts at Bike Farm!
Tokens are purchased for $1 each and given to the homeless instead of cash.
Tokens are used by the homeless to get inside for the night, purchase clothing, tents, and sleeping bags, get food, do laundry, and even get their bikes fixed.
We purchase tokens back from vendors, repackages them, and offer them back to the community. Some tokens have been in circulation for over 10 years and over 12,000 tokens have been minted in the last 12 years.
