Local Non-Profit Spotlight: You Are Worth It Foundation

The You Are Worth It Foundation is a grassroots homeless and in-need outreach group from Phoenixville, PA. Around Phoenixville recently asked Chris Brickhouse for some more information about the Foundation and how you can help:

Tell us a little about You Are Worth It and how it got started:
We are a homeless outreach organizations serving Phoenixville, Pottstown, Norristown, Center City and Kensington in Philly and constantly expanding. We were formed in early 2018 by Dina Rowan and I came on board last June. We have roughly 15 volunteers so far and would like to expand that to expand our reach. We take donated items directly to the people. We provide them with a hot meal and new or lightly used clothing and self-care products. We have long term goals of a mobile shower center, vocational training and assisting with housing in any way possible.

What kind of items do you need?
We take a wide array of items - individually packaged food, canned goods, ramen, protein bars, water, self-care items like shampoo, soap, deodorant, women's health items like tampons and pads, new or lightly used clothing - socks, underwear, shirts, pants and shoes - all sizes, mens and womens. We also take used technology like computers and tablets and refurbish them then provide to area shelters. For local outreach we take tents and camping gear. If you have any questions, you can contact us through the website. Cash donations are always welcome because we can then buy whatever is needed. Also on the website we have an Amazon wishlist that has needed items and allows users to ship items directly to us for distribution.
