Santa needs your help this Christmas season! All the families at Door of Hope work hard to move from homelessness to permanent housing and we’re proud of how much they’re accomplishing. Let’s fill their Christmas with joy and cheer! 

“One of my favorite memories and experiences at Door of Hope was my very first Christmas…it changed something in me. Now I understand that there are people who can care for you, even if they don’t know you…it inspired me to give back in the same way.” – Jose, 2002 Transitional Housing Program Graduate

Santa Claus is coming to town: As a Secret Santa, you sponsor an entire family and purchase each gift requested (total 2 per family member). Gifts are left unwrapped for parents to wrap and are due on Monday, November 27.
