It's Not Just About Socks. It's About Dignity.

Socks are the most requested item by our unhoused neighbors. With Socks+, your support means not only warm feet, but dignity. Join Community West Foundation in illuminating hope by delivering dignity and well-being to the people of Western Cleveland. 100% of your donation helps people in Cleveland, Western Cuyahoga and Lorain Counties. 

How You Can Help

Dignity comes in pairs. Socks and underwear. Shampoo and soap. Gloves and hats. Driven by the ever-changing needs of unhoused Clevelanders, 100% of your donation delivers essential supplies to our struggling neighbors and inspires resilience.
Give a Gift 

We all share the same heart. With your generous donation, we can provide basic needs support to local men, women, and families. A gift of $10 provides 10 pairs of socks. A larger donation allows us to purchase socks plus gloves, hats, backpacks, and other necessities.

Your Socks+ donation helps ensure Clevelanders experiencing personal hardship have access to not only socks,
but basic care items and more.

  • New Socks
