We celebrate several milestones; reaching 501(c)3 status, have terminal tower lit all red to raise awareness of the homeless hookup, to reach more donators, making the maximum impact possible, in our own city!

ITS A HOMELESS PIZZA PARTY IN PUBLIC SQUARE! (we will be back the following day. to clean up any pizza boxes or trash our party left behind. these are our streets. these are our people).

501(c)3

 Homeless Hookup started as a very, grass roots organization. handing out small provisional items to the homeless. As more and more people saw our passion for helping others, and they saw the gratitude these little items bring, the more of an impact we, as an organization made. Enabling us to make bigger and better packets, weekly donations, Toy Drives, Fund raisers, and so much more!

However, I believe we have reached our grass roots limit, and its time for us to branch out and keep this much needed mission alive. In order to do that, we will be going 501(C)3 tax exempt! This way we can collect bigger contributions to make an even larger impact. We may not solve the homelessness crisis, but you can bet everything you have, that we will make a massive impact. The 501(c)3 was filed may 17th 2018 and we will proudly keep everyone updated on that process!

Shower Bus

With the help of the Lakewood fire and EMT, we have acquired our new bus! (Its actually a 1985 Honeybee RV. But, with the help of the Lakewoods Fire and EMT, we have retrofitted it with a endless hot water heater, a barbers chair, thrift store and a soup kitchen. Making it the very first Mobile Homeless Hygiene Unit.

How we roll

About Us

What we are about

The Homeless Hookup is an organization dedicated to helping the less fortunate affected by poverty and homelessness. We go out 1 to 2 times per week and hand out emergency packets filled with hygiene items and seasonal necessities. We also do toy drives throughout the year.

Our number one goal is the well-being and humanizing of those passed by on the streets every day. Secondly, transparency with donations. We go live every week, handing out donations. So, be sure to follow and like us on FaceBook!

Eventually our goal is to provide job and housing placement and offer short term shelters for families in need.
