During the Christmas season, we have opportunities to enrich the holiday experience for parents and kids. You can Be a Secret Santa by sponsoring a family and purchasing their desired gifts. You can Donate to our Toy Drive by helping to fill our “Toy Store” for the Christmas Festival for residents and Alumni families. You can Donate a $50 Target Gift Card that helps a family purchase items they really need. SUBSCRIBE to our emails and be the first to hear and sign up for these opportunities…they go fast! No application is required.
Celebrate the season! Join us in the holiday tradition, be it organizing an Easter egg hunt, donating ingredients for a Thanksgiving meal, bringing candy for Halloween or honoring our moms on Mother’s Day with flowers and chocolate. Perhaps you’d even like to share a tradition you do with your own family. Your efforts go a long way in spreading joy during any season. To apply, please complete the General Application.
We want to celebrate and bless our families who have made the transition from our shelter to their new home. In the spirit of acknowledging their efforts, we have set up a special Amazon Housewarming Wish List to bring together items needed to help furnish their space. When you make a purchase, you’re invited to share in the graduation ceremony and celebration. To apply, SUBSCRIBE to our email below, where upcoming graduations are announced. No application is required.
Let’s have some fun! During our Summer Carnival in July, and our Christmas Festival in December, we need volunteers to host booths for games, treats, crafts, or any delightful engagement that brings smiles and joy to you and our families. From face painting to water balloon tossing to a hot chocolate booth and even a water dunk booth, we’re open to all imagination for a fun-filled experience. To apply, please complete the General Application.
We LOVE to celebrate our kids who live with us at Door of Hope, and what better way than on their birthday! Birthday Angels purchase a gift on a child’s wishlist, wrap it up in bows and love, and deliver it to our Community Center along with a hand-written card. It could even be a tradition you do on your own birthday! To be connected with a child’s wish, please email firstname.lastname@example.org Application is not required.
From cleaning supplies to towels to bedsheets, check out our Amazon Wish List to see current items needed by our families and at our homes. To ensure we may acknowledge your support, be sure to email email@example.com with a receipt of your purchase. No application is required.
In our desire to be fully led by God, we value prayer as a fundamental part of seeing our mission become a reality. We invite you to join our Prayer Team. You will receive a weekly text to pray for a family’s specific need, and a monthly invitation to join our staff for a thirty-minute prayer meeting, virtually or in person. To indicate your interest, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Invite your friends, family, or colleagues to attend a public or private, in-person or virtual Stories of Hope tour where we share about the homelessness crisis, our response to it, and learn how you can join us in making a difference. You’ll also engage with our Executive Director, ask questions, and hear from a family who has experienced our program. To indicate your interest, please email email@example.com

To apply, please complete the General Application and Supplemental applications.
