We are excited to announce our inaugural Pack the Pantry food drive! New Hope Housing shelters provide breakfast, lunch, and dinner, 7 days a week, 365 days of the year to our guests. Clients in the community are also provided food baskets to supplement their pantries as they make the transition from homelessness to housing. We need your support to provide nutritious meals!

We will be accepting non-perishable donations at our three shelters on the following days & times. View our flyer with a full list of needed items or visit our Amazon wish list to ship items directly to New Hope Housing.

Interesting in volunteering? We will need volunteers to help accept and sort donations! Sign up to volunteer here. Volunteers must be 18 years or older.
