In the Kansas City area, 17,000 people experience homelessness at some point during the year, and nearly half of them are families. Sheffield Place, a long-term transitional housing program, empowers homeless mothers and their children to recover from the trauma of homelessness and become self-sufficient.
Sheffield Place helps up to 30 families each year through its residential-services program, which includes housing for up to two years and supportive services for the mothers, who all have experienced mental-health or addiction problems. Each family lives in a private two-room space with a private bath, with a shared kitchen and laundry room on each floor. Prior to their arrival, the families' beds are prepared with new, clean blankets, sheets, and pillows to help them feel welcome and establish a comfortable, fresh start in their new home. When the families are ready to move into permanent housing, the bed linens and blankets are theirs to take with them.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help Sheffield Place purchase bed linens and blankets for families staying at its transitional shelter. If G-Team members raise $300, then Sheffield Place can buy bed linens and blankets for six homeless women and their children who are living in Sheffield Place's transitional shelter. Each additional $50 raised will be used to provide another family at the shelter with bed linens and blankets.

So "buyer" beware—when you click "Buy" to donate your time or money to a worthwhile G-Team cause, the only discount you may receive is 100 percent off free, priceless karma. Read more about G-Team.
