Help Keep Chattanooga Safe and Clean!

Dropping off perishable/non-perishables items directly to homeless individuals has caused an unsafe environment within our community. CICH encourages you to donate directly to a center or online. Contact our list of organizations that provide directly to the homeless community, or call 211.
