Back To Top



This group of volunteers helps find those exposed to the elements in northeast Ohio and other cities in the region then offers them warming items. The 501C3 Organization owns three vehicles to scout and make deliveries in these areas. The group also concentrates on finding veterans who make up a high percentage of homeless. We have special cards with contact information in order to get them the special help that is available to veterans. There are volunteers who also work with local shelters and other homeless and veteran organizations. We will help stock the shelters and deliver needed goods.

For the fiscal year ended December 31, 2015, SZM's program expenses were:

Programs 77,423
