Donation Needs for Local Shelters & Service Agencies

April 30,2020


Our local service providers have made some major operational shifts in order to continue to serve their communities safely. With these changes come additional needs for supplies and operation funds. Please see the lists of most-needed items below. Any form or amount of donation can make a difference.

Additionally, CTL is supporting another 100 previously homeless families in scattered-site housing across Tarrant County. Most of these families are headed by a single mother and 60% of them are unemployed now, due to COVID.
