How to Help

Support families and young adults as they settle into a new home.

Many of Community Action's participants in our Homelessness Prevention programs enter new homes without the costly supplies they need. Basic home items such as towels, dishes, and cleaning supplies add up quickly. Can you welcome home your friends and neighbors by helping them reach their goals for independence and economic stability?

Community Action is accepting NEW donations of the following items: silverware, dish sets, drinking glasses, food storage containers, towels/wash cloths (kitchen and bathroom), bed sheets (twin, full, queen preferred), pillows, cleaning supplies (mops, brooms, sponges, sprays, etc.), trash bags, plungers, laundry detergent, toilet paper, trash cans, laundry baskets, and shower curtains with hooks/rings.

Community Action will accept new or gently used donations of the following items: pots/pans, hangers, clocks, lamps, and home decor. 

Donations can be dropped off Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. at Community Action’s office at 210 O St in Lincoln. Or order from the Amazon wish list and ship directly to Community Action. 

Groups, businesses, or organizations interested in organizing a donation drive should contact Sam Bates at or 402-875-9320.
