This year, Ruth's Place is celebrating the 11th anniversary of its main fundraiser, "Walk for Hope", on Sunday, September 30th from 12:30 PM - 3:00 PM on Public Square in Wilkes-Barre.  Walk proceeds will go  towards maintaining the shelters living quarters and expanding programming.  We will be looking for volunteers to be on a team of walkers!  Together we can give women the dignity, service, and supportive community they need to overcome homelessness.  Thank you in advance for your support.

Ruth's Place is in need of many donated services and items, from medical and dental care to bedding, food, and toiletries. Please contact the Ruth's Place at 570-822-6817 if you might provide any of the following items.  Thank you for your generosity!  Donations of clothing and shoes for women experiencing homelessness may be given directly​ to the Volunteers of America Thrift Store: 400 S. Main St., Wilkes-Barre (570-829-5100).
