Our drop-in center serves individuals who are homeless, from low-income households and women returning home from a period of incarceration. We always have a consistent flow of clients coming in for clothes, hygiene products and other emergent but basic needs. One of the most sought after products are hygiene products and we are in constant need for more.
These products include but are not limited to:
Travel size soap, deodorant, toothpaste, mouthwash, powder, lotion, shampoo, hair products for men and women.
Underwear for men and women (of all sizes)
Female sanitary pads or tampons.
We are also in the process of creating small welcome kits for women coming home from jail or prison with hygiene and other basic need products. Any donations of these products will be gratefully appreciated.
Please contact Erin Calloway at (202) 347-0511 or via email at Ecalloway@cflsdc.org for donations or further information.

Throughout the year, CFLS hosts a number of special events aimed at raising funds and educating the community about the causes and consequences of homelessness and the unique plights faced by women reintegrating back into society after a period of incarceration.
