June Change for Good Partner: Maslow Project

June's Change for Good Partner is

Maslow Project

local nonprofit Maslow Project


Maslow Project empowers homeless youth and families to engage and thrive independently, in all aspects of life, by providing supports that stabilize and strengthen resiliency.

Maslow Project's program model is intentionally low barrier and easy access. Their outreach workers, advocates and case managers help people individually connect with the services and programs that best meet their needs and goals, and they stay with them along the way, lending encouragement and support. Their services are 100% free to those Maslow Project serves.

Upcoming Events
Maslow Project's Annual Back to School Supply Giveaway

At the beginning of every school year, Maslow Project hands out backpacks, filled with necessary school supplies, to over 700 student clients. For some families, buying school supplies just isn’t feasible, or can cause a huge financial burden. The Back to School Supply Giveaway eliminates the financial stress of a new school year. Starting school off with new supplies, just like their peers, could be the difference in a student getting engaged in class, or not.

You can make a difference in these children’s education by sponsoring this event!

To learn more, visit their webpage https://www.maslowproject.com/2022-sponsorships or contact Maddie at [email protected] to learn how you can sponsor a student’s backpack this year!

A Conversation with Katie Falkenberg, Photographer and Filmmaker

Katie Falkenberg's photography and filmmaking has taken her all over the world, and lucky for us - she's been calling the Rogue Valley home for a couple years now. Exquisitely and harmoniously capturing the world around her, she is documenting not only through the lens but also through her peaceful and loving spirit. Katie reached out to us in hopes of collaborating after falling in love with the co-op soon after moving here.
