Critical Needs at CP

As you can imagine, it requires many resources to operate Carpenter’s Place and all of our program and housing units.  The following items are almost always needed, and we appreciate any and all donations!  Download and print our Needs List!

Currently, CP has a critical need for (non-plastic) silverware sets for new housing guests.  If you are cleaning out your silverware drawer, or are getting a new set, please consider donating your old sets to CP!
