We need the support and assistance from businesses and organizations within our community. Consider adopting Hope House as your charity of choice for your annual giving.
Throughout the year, your company or organization can implement a variety of activities to support Hope House in different ways. For example, you can collect urgently needed items for those residing in a shelter, invite a speaker from Hope House to educate staff on domestic violence issues, collect monetary donations, or organize a volunteer project for Hope House. Many organizations will change their support method with the start of a new month. These activities are not only incredibly rewarding for your group, but also are great for team building and company unity.
