Welcome Home Hamper
Many of our clients have experienced chronic homelessness and bring with them few or no possessions to establish their new home. You can help them by providing brand-new essentials – bedsheets, towels, dishes and cookware, a toothbrush and toiletries – things most of us take for granted.
Successful transition from homelessness to housing truly hinges on these small things that help people recover their self-worth, their dignity, and their sense of belonging.
