Our Mission

Sunshine Place spreads rays of hope for individuals, families, and children facing hardship.  In the spirit of neighbors helping neighbors, Sunshine Place delivers food, clothing and necessary services with respect and dignity.  We expand our reach when more neighbors join our efforts to support families when they need it the most.

Join Us!


Since 2006, donations from caring neighbors have helped Sunshine Place deliver food, child outreach and social services. Sunshine Place raises $200,000 a year to cover the programming for six volunteer run programs and subsidize our partner agencies to bring their services to our two-building campus. We are always in need of donations of time, money, and resources to continue our mission.
