Homeless Hookup CLE lights up tower city

Ligh up the tower and pizza party

On July 7th 2018 Homeless hookup CLE, Will celebrate! 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! To show our thanks for all the support, we are buying 100 personal pizzas and handing them out to tent city, east side and west. then, giving the rest to the ones on the street. 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).

Follow @TowerLightsCLE on twitter to see the updates on the tower and for the many different causes, it lights up for.

Thanks to our sponsors:

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!

LUNCH LINE HOOKUP/ PACKETS

Currently, we have our eyes set on raising enough money to help sponsor families in need for the 2019 school year.  Most kids get lunch because their parents can afford it. Then there are those  who do not make enough money and are provided government subsidized lunches. Which is amazing. but, what about the families that make to much on paper, but in reality struggle to make ends meet. sometimes these kids fall through the cracks and don't  have the money for a full lunch, or the courage to ask. this is where we want to help. having prepaid lunches ready for that one kid who always, "forgets his lunch money". I believe this will be a job for the 501(c)3. in the meantime, we  still need to keep those hygiene packets filled and on the street. so, go to the wish-list above and place an order of what you would like to see donated!!!

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.
