Our Gifts of Hope provide alternative giving options - allowing you to give a gift that will make a lasting impact for a person in need.

You can touch the life of someone in need through our Gifts of Hope, with gifts starting as low as $5. For example: purchase a toy for a homeless child; or purchase transportation for an individual staying at one of our centers. Or help support our homeless veterans who served our country.

Giving a Gift of Hope is easy – simply follow these steps:

  1. Select the Gift of Hope you want to give and purchase the gift.
  2. You will receive a confirmation with a link to download a gift card with a picture of the item you’ve purchased.
  3. Type in who the card is to and who the card is from.
  4. Print the card and give it to a family member, friend or colleague.
  5. Keep a copy of your receipt as all Gifts of Hope items are tax-deductible.
