Bring Real Change to Homelessness

Homelessness affects everyone in our community. With the rise in people living without a home, many Santa Monicans are wondering what they can do to help. Often, giving spare change seems like the simplest way to start, but it unfortunately doesn't connect individuals to social services that could lead to permanent housing.

Instead, consider Text Support, a text-based giving program through Downtown Santa Monica, Inc. that routes your donation to local agencies providing homeless services like housing, counseling and other support. To date, more than $280,000 has been collected!


How to give:

Text "support" to 310.494.7011.

You will be sent a link to confirm your donation.


Or you can use the Text Support widget at the bottom of this page.
