Donate to CDS

Your donations enable us to continue supporting families in our community.

Here are some ways you can make a difference


We are currently in the process of fundraising for our new Interface Youth Program in Gainesville. Built in the 1950s and procured by us in 1990, our original shelter building has been a home, a dentist's office, and finally, our shelter. It is time to retire and update! Help us build a new shelter!  You can also donate to a specific program!


Do you have items you'd like to donate? Our Interface Youth Program is always in need of specific items. Please see the list below for details on what we are currently accepting.


Our Interface Youth Programs are always in need of volunteers. Individuals who are willing to take the time to listen to our kids and become mentors. Simple acts of kindness that can change our kids' lives. Want to make a difference in a person's life? Consider volunteering with us.


We're seeking business partners to enhance our program and create unforgettable family experiences. We need gift cards, museum tickets, and family outings like coffee dates. If your business can offer meals or locations for our families to enjoy for free, let us know! We'll promote your business as you help us create lasting family memories.


Consider CDS your charitable organization as part of your donation by will. This can include gifts of land, items, or assets that you would like to contribute to continuing our programs and our mission to help strengthen communities by building strong families.
