Our Mission

Small Sums’ sole purpose is to help homeless individuals, who have found jobs, with the specific things that they need to start back to work. We often provide our clients assistance with things like work clothes and shoes, trade tools, professional licenses or union dues, and bus passes so they have a reliable way to get to work everyday until they receive a paycheck.
