Holiday Wish List -

Holiday Wish List

We want families at Housing Families First to experience the goodness of the season, whether a safe comforting stopover at the shelter or embarking on the new endeavor of a home of their own.

There are several ways you can help us make an impact this holiday season. Donations in any amount can truly help our families. For instance, a donation of just $17.50 can buy a bus pass for a parent to get to and from a new job. A $50 donation can buy a pack and play for a baby staying at the shelter. A $100 donation can pay for a week of before and after-school care so that a parent can start work before their first paycheck comes in. A generous sponsorship of $3,000 can pay all costs for an entire family to stay at Hilliard House emergency shelter for a month. Your donation, in any amount, will matter to our families.

In addition to monetary donations, we have a wish list that will help us to manage and provide for our families here at the shelter and as they make the next step into a home of their own. Our families start out with bedding, sheets, and towels here at the shelter that will go with them when they leave. We are constantly needing to restock many of our items so that the families moving on can have the necessities when they move to their own place. Gift cards for gas and basic essentials can be a lifesaver for our families. Your donations to our wish list can help us provide these things for them. You can even order many items from our Amazon wish list and have them delivered directly here to the shelter.

Every donation and deed will make an incredible impact on the life of a child or parent seeking housing stability for their family. Thank you for continuing to partner with us. We could not be here without the help of people like you!
