Giving HOPE receives grants from several federal, state, and local entities which are used to provide direct assistance to clients. Unfortunately, many of these grants do not include funding for many expenses associated with operating the agency, such as rent, utilities, and supplies.

Giving HOPE accepts monetary donations to help defray the administrative costs of the agency. Currently, approximately 84% of the funds Giving HOPE receives go directly to assist clients. Less than 5% of Giving HOPE's funds are used for fundraising purposes.
a $50 donationwill equip two families with a "welcome to your home" basket containing toiletries and cleaning supplies
a $100 donationwill assist one family with utilities for a month
a $250 donationwill provide work skills, budgeting and self-sufficiency counseling for families facing a housing crisis
a $500 donationwill help supplement housing payments to prevent eviction or foreclosure for one family
a $1000 donationwill pay one month's rent for two families leaving a homeless or domestic violence shelter
Also, many of Giving HOPE's clients are transitioning from emergency shelter to a rental property. As a result, many clients do not have many of the basic requirements for starting a household, such as cleaning supplies, bedding, and kitchenware. Check with the Giving HOPE office or your church to see if they are accepting donations of these articles.
