Appreciate WAIT Capital Campaign

WAIT House is turning 20!



The APPRECIATE WAIT Capital Campaign has been challenged!  If we can raise $50,000 from YOU between now and September 30, the Charles R. Wood Foundation will match that amount.  That means every gift you give will be worth twice as much!

Will YOU help us meet our match?  Donate below.

We couldn’t be more grateful for everything YOU HAVE DONE to help local youth in crisis.  To celebrate, we’re launching our Appreciate WAIT Campaign.  After 20 years and over 2,000 youth served, it’s time for some necessary updates to our shelter.  We know that sometimes local youth and families need support during tough times and WAIT House is determined to be here when they do.

We need YOUR help!   Currently we are accepting sponsorships and donations to help us in three key areas.



  • New Cameras
  • Updated Security System
  • New Digital Door Locks

Exterior Improvements

  • Repair Siding
  • Roof Repairs
  • Porch Repairs
  • Exterior Paint

Interior Improvements
