Providing Comfort and Support to the Needy

About Us

Save Us Now, Inc. was started in 2010 after discovering that there were very little resources like personal hygiene items, clothing, household goods, and furniture for under-served communities (homeless and displaced) to get for free. After spending countless hours researching what they were receiving from the local government and community organizations and what resources could be made available to them, Save Us Now, Inc. Founder Gwendolyn Baker-Lassiter and several colleagues in the Mental Health & Community Service field came together and founded Save Us Now, Inc. They decided to create an organization that could provide these kinds of resources consistently and assist populations in need.


Save Us Now Inc. slowly began to gain a reputation as a resource provider organization and started to assist local and state social service organizations by centralizing the solicitation, collection, and distribution of basic household goods and resources to serve low-income, homeless, and displaced families and individuals. This helped to prevent service duplication efforts and reduce extra work on the state/local social service organizations staff.


The safety net of services provided by Save Us Now, Inc. to under-served, disenfranchised, and marginalized communities provides an incredible level of comfort, dignity, and self-esteem to these families.
