Wish List Items
Imagine starting over from scratch. That's what many of our clients have to do once they leave Hope House. Having left their homes with little or nothing, they must start over in a new place. We’ve found there are specific essential items that can help a displaced survivor feel a sense of home and belonging. They include:
- Towels (kitchen, bath, etc.)
- Sheets/bedding (twin, double, queen)
- Pots and pans
- Kitchen countertop appliances (microwave, toaster, blender, mixer, coffee maker, toaster oven, Crock-Pot, can opener, etc.)
- Small furniture (end tables, night stands, etc.)
- Alarm clocks
