Hope Community Donor & Volunteer Opportunities

Hope Community Rapid Re-Housing Program provides housing and supportive services to homeless women and children in our community.

Hope Community is in urgent need of donations—furniture and household items, baby care essentials and more. This 501(c)(3) organization also needs volunteers to pick up donations, help with facility maintenance, and provide services ranging from resident tutoring to car repairs. Click Hope Community Wish List for further details about how you can make a tax-deductible donation of goods or services.

GRHC Lead RSS Specialist/FSS Coordinator Laura Oesch explains how you can help support Hope Community residents!
