March Donations Needed 2022

A common compliment to hear is that homeless individuals are so strong and courageous. It’s true, they accomplish so much with so little. They push on when they’re exhausted and keep fighting. Wouldn’t it be nice, though, if they didn’t have to be strong or fight? If systems didn’t fail them, if abusers faced justice, if mental health issues were addressed differently, if dollars stretched just a little further?

Hospitality House aims to be a place where our residents don’t have to be tough or courageous. Our ladies are welcome to share their fears with us, to cry, laugh, build trust and tear down walls. Sometimes we forget how exhausting it feels when you have to be strong and there’s no other choice. I’m sure many of us have heard that you can’t pour from an empty cup, but that’s precisely what homeless individuals manage to do-they push and they try and they pour from their cups to get a single ounce of relief.

You, our donors, help so much in refilling those cups. You give these women a chance to rest, and a safe space to just exist. Thank you for allowing our women to be something other than strong or courageous. Thank you for letting them be who they are, and supporting them so they can simply be.

Below you’ll see the list of donations needed for March. If you feel compelled to help our present and future residents, please feel free to shop our Amazon wishlist or your favorite retailer, you can even have your items delivered directly to us so you don’t have to leave home.

If you’d like to gift Hospitality House with a little extra at no cost to you, you can make purchases through and select Hospitality House as your chosen organization. Find out more here.

February Donations Needed 2022

Every single woman coming through our doors has a unique life experience, but often we have observed a pattern emerging beginning the moment a new resident walks through the doors.

There is always fear that shows itself when arriving at the shelter, sometimes only one bag in hand. Then delight when a new resident enjoys their first home-cooked dinner brought by one of our meal providers. Then they get a warm shower, clean clothes, they make their bed, and start to make Hospitality House home. Each resident develops their own routine, and with that, a sense of comfort.

The donations needed list is made to aid in providing each resident comfort. The new pajamas you donate gives each woman the ability to relax with a new peace of mind, the mascara you bought on sale allows her to feel confident to her job interview, the blanket your quilting group made allows her to feel like she’s home. Residents will often take items like these with them when their time comes to leave. They want to take their comfort with them, so of course they can take their favorite blanket or the coffee mug they’ve used every morning for the last 3 months. Your donations give them a piece of home to take with them.

Thank you for your donations that create a sense of home for our ladies, and thank you for continuously donating so that well of comfort never runs dry.

We understand that it might be easier and safer to shop from home. We would like to invite you to check out our Needs List on Amazon, and have your donations delivered directly to Hospitality House.
