Our Services

Your donations, all tax deductible, can be sent to:
Well in the Desert, P.O. Box 5312, Palm Springs, 92263. 

We once again offer daily showers, snacks, clean clothing,and more services than we have room  to talk about here.  Our services will continue and expand once we have settled in.

Watch for our Open House announcement where all will be invited to meet our partners, see our building, enjoy the camaraderie of neighbors, enjoy some good music and food, and feel part of the Well family.

No check is too big, or too small. Only 12 percent of all our funds go to administrative services, everything else is for client assistance and services. We know who we are by our work and our deeds.

Please join us as together we help provide for others who will be lifted by the good we share with them.

Office Hours: 8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Please call (760) 656-8905 for the schedule of our daily hot food program.
