By employing those affected by homelessness to create keys with words of affirmation and empowerment, The Giving Keys has enabled countless men and women to transition out of homelessness while engaging the world in a conversation about community, hope, and innovation. “Today, The Giving Keys are carried in over 1200 stores in the US and internationally.” Be part of the movement.
