We can't do it without you. The Renewal Center relies on donations to change the lives of homeless people in Shanghai. Your gifts provide basic support, meals, friendship and warmth. More than that, you also offer safe, temporary accommodation, career training – and help getting an essential national identity card, a satisfying job and a permanent home.
Your gift of support will arrive at an important time for homeless men and women, between the heat of summer and the cold of winter. In the warmer months, people just want to wash off the sweat and grime of the streets -- but the winter weather can be life-threatening for those who sleep outdoors.
Gifts as simple as hot meals and clean clothes are hugely encouraging to homeless people. You make them feel cared for -- and often inspired to begin training for a steady job and a better life.
