Why You're Needed!

Growing up, no one protected me from being hurt by others. I don’t want that for my children. I’m scared of doing this on my own, but I want to learn!”

You read their stories in our newsletters and you see their pictures on our Facebook page, but do you know how you can make change happen?

You can become a monthly donor

“I remember waiting by the window all day for my mom to come home, but she never did. She put drugs first. I don’t want to do that to my kids. That’s why I knew I had to come here. I’m not giving up.”  -Gloria, Past Resident

Every year, we house nearly 20 mothers and 30 children, and every year, these sweet lives are transformed. You make that happen by volunteering or promoting food drives at your church or workplace. However, we cannot provide safe homes, skilled interventions, and an extended reach to more families in more communities, without your financial support. 

You secure the future of homeless women and children housed at Hearth Homes by becoming a monthly donor. Please join us as we look forward to 2016 and accomplishing critical goals:

-Sustaining current programs that equip mothers with critical skills to break cycles of abuse, addiction, and poverty. 

-Eliminating our $130,000 mortgage to dramatically increase overall sustainability and allow us to serve more families in more communities.
