You Can Help

Together, we can help our community.

During these uncertain and potentially stressful times, the youth and families we serve can face additional challenges, including maintaining stable housing, providing food and hygiene items, and securing other basic necessities. Many face additional a loss of income, an increase in child care and household expenses, and a reduction in other available resources.

At the Affordable Housing Network, we work side by side with youth and families to overcome these barriers and fill gaps in basic necessities. By partnering with us, you can help a child maintain stability during these difficult times.


To ensure the safety and health of our staff, youth and families, we are only able to accept new items.

You can also deliver items to the Four Oaks Bridge location, 2100 1st Ave. NE in Cedar Rapids. The office is open Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Want to do a touch-free drop off? Call to arrange a drop off at our Bridge location and you can leave your items outside our door during regular business hours for our team to retrieve.

Our most commonly needed items are:

  • twin sized bed sheet sets
  • shampoo

  • body wash
  • loofahs
  • toothpaste
  • toothbrushes
  • combs
  • hair brushes
