Family Resource Guides

Monthly DIY Project & Hive Drive

La Casa Norte’s mission is to serve youth and families confronting homelessness by providing housing and other services such as education support and employment-readiness. In the last year, La Casa Norte distributed almost 30,000 meals to their clients.

DIY Project
Many families can’t afford basic school supplies like pencils, crayons and paper that kids need to get ready for school. Shop with your family to provide school supplies for children served by La Casa Norte. You will help kids to have the supplies they need to learn and enjoy school.

Hive Drive
Host a quarter drive with your school, friends, coworkers and neighbors! Create a change jar to collect quarters to help La Casa Norte’s clients do laundry. While many of us take doing laundry for granted, it can is a big expense for many families, especially those experiencing homelessness.

Drop off your donations at Honeycomb’s office:
