Membership

Members are the backbone of our organization.  They are our advocates. Our donors. They keep the lights on, the doors open and the good work continuing. Renew your membership or Become a member today! 

There are two ways to be a member: annual renewal or Evergreen (monthly giving). All membership levels are available both as an Evergreen member and an annual member. Evergreen members provide us with stability since we can count on consistent monthly donations. This allows us to do the work without worrying about the bills. Evergreen members will receive a member card when they join and then will receive new cards annually in January/February.
