THANK YOU!  83 Crisis Agencies in 13 Communities recieved $335,000 worth of supplies in 2014!

More than $1,335,000 worth of supplies stocked since 2008 - thank you!

"There is no better feeling than being clean!" That's what one of our 9 year old guests told me one day while I was working at the shelter.  She said "My hair is cleaned, my teeth are cleaned and I am beautiful!"  My response to her was "YOU most certainly are!"  - Erin Schultz, House of Hope    More stories and thank you notes 

What:

The Family’s ‘Help for the Homeless’ hygiene drive works with area homeless coalitions to stock the shelves of 80+ area homeless and crisis programs in 13 communities.
