YOUR A GIFT OF HOPE DONATION CAN HELP CHANGE A LIFE!

Homelessness can happen to anyone… The majority of women that we serve never saw it coming – the loss of a job, death of a spouse, domestic violence, a serious illness, or a partner walking away from their family leaving little to no support. Help change a life today with a Gift of Hope Donation! Your contribution will enable HOS to provide basic necessities to women and children who are experiencing homelessness, such as housing, food and clothing!

Last year alone, your support directly impacted the lives of 378 individuals (unduplicated). HOS helped an additional 2,200+ individuals through phone referrals to community resources. This is your chance to help women lift themselves out of the cycle of homelessness, domestic violence and other issues that led them to HOS. Thank you for your generosity! Have a great holiday season!
