The generosity of the community is what allows us to continue to provide free services to youth and people in need.


Support from individual donors allows us to continue providing free services for the community.  We are a small organization with low overhead operating expenses, so all donations directly impact the lives of local youth.


All donations are tax-deductible.


Please make all checks payable to Waterside Workshops, and send to the address listed below.
