11 Ways to Help Others at Home (And Across the Country)

Support People Facing Homelessness

Homelessness is a significant issue in many cities, but there are ways you can help.

Look Out for Animal Welfare

Animals matter, too, and citizens can take steps to protect both wild and domestic critters.

  • Know how to protect wildlife and when you should seek aid for orphaned animals.
  • Help homeless pets in your neighborhood (without leaving home).
  •  Understand why it’s important to spay and neuter pets (and strays).

Getting active in the community

Start getting active in your neighborhood to help others.

If you want to help others but aren’t sure how to begin, these resources are an excellent starting point. Whether you aim to help the homeless, wildlife, or your neighbors, altruism is a reward all its own. Plus, you never know what impact your efforts will make.
