Many of our community members experiencing homelessness do not have the resources to purchase basic hygiene items. We have the solution-Hope Totes. These lightweight, drawstring, sport packs filled with basic necessities and a community resource list, are a great way for individuals, homeschool co-ops, youth groups or companies to help.
What can you do?

There are 3 ways that you can help.

Volunteers host a drive to collect various hygiene items or other essentials and donate them to Hope’s Journey Inc.
