Make A Donation

Since we are not funded by government agencies, the success of our program depends on the generosity of our wonderful community. Each year our budget increases as we add services for our guests at Easton's Promise, as well as up to eight families in our off-site apartments.

Watch the video below to find out what you're REALLY giving when you donate to TIS.
