Share Your Holiday Spirit!
The holidays are a time to come together and share.
This year, share your generosity with those who are less fortunate.
You can help the individuals and families we serve in several ways:
Sponsor a family and fulfill their wish list
Start a giving tree at your workplace or church
Host a gift drive for homeless adults or children
Collect toys for children in need
The holidays are just around the corner, which means we are getting wish lists ready and checking them twice! As always, we are collecting donations of gift items for the families and individuals we serve. If you are interested in donating gifts, you can check out our 2013 Holiday Wish List. Items donated as gifts must be new and arrive unwrapped - will gratefully accept donations of wrapping paper.
We prefer donations be dropped off by Friday, December 13th, so the families and individuals have time to wrap their gifts in time for holiday celebrations.
If would you prefer to sponsor an entire family, please email Annushka, or call 414-389-3834 to make arrangements for donating to a family of a size that fits your budget.
We Need Youth Program Volunteers!
School-year programming is in full swing and we need volunteers, age 18 and above, to assist with our afternoon and evening youth programming. We need volunteers Monday through Friday from the hours of 2:30 -5:00 pm for tutoring, as well as volunteers to assist for workshops from 5:30 - 7:30pm, Monday through Thursday. Do you have a few hours a week to assist with tutoring, or after-school workshops? Please contact our Youth Services Supervisor, Beth, at (414) 389 3823 for more information.
It is the mission of Hope House to end homelessness and create healthy communities.
Hope House is an emergency and transitional living facility as well as a true community center located in the near south side of Milwaukee. Opened in 1987, Hope House was created to provide a safe, temporary refuge for people needing a place to sleep. Over the years, Hope House has evolved into a complete provider of services for homeless and low income individuals. In addition to residential services, Hope House provides community outreach to individuals needing health care, food distribution, financial assistance, and educational opportunities for adults and children. Hope House provides services that aim to end homelessness and create healthy communities.
Thanks to our donor!
Hope House wishes to thank American Family Insurance for their recent donation of $1,500!
Thank you! Your generosity goes a long way toward helping us to serve families and individuals in need!
