Challenges & Activities

The need for a sense of home has never been more paramount. We have all become deeply aware that home is our safe haven. Home is everything. As we imagine families sleeping and eating on floors, our waitlist is growing at an alarming rate. Please DONATE HERE so that we can continue to create homes for former foster youth and their children.

From One Kid to Another

Collect and bundle kids items such as clothes, shoes, books, toys, and school supplies into custom, generous baskets for kids in age.

Write a note from one kid to another and add your social handle so we can tag you!

#CookingConnected Challenge

We are delivering extensive groceries in addition to all of the essential items of beds, linens, baby needs, cooking and bathroom, dining table to those worst affected by COVID-19.

Virtual Love Jar

All volunteers at our ASOH home creations write notes that go into the love jar for each recipient.

We invite you to write inspirational notes to go into future love jars. We will print out and place the notes in love jars in the homes we create, and ask you to post on your social channels and tag #VirtualLoveJar

Give a Gift of Home

Find something that has given you a wonderful feeling of what home means to you. Then wrap and gift to someone who will soon receive a home creation and include a note explaining how meaningful it is to you.

At this time of immense hardship we share and understand the challenges.

As we are all spending more time at home, we realize how important it is to have all the furnishings that we are blessed with. Unfortunately, the same is not true for foster youth who age out of the system every day. Right now, A Sense of Home has a ballooning waitlist of youth who need a bed to sleep in, a dining table to eat from, a fridge to store food in, and a desk to study on.

Participate or make a donation, in any amount, today to help us create loving homes so that young people and their families have a fair shot at the life that lies ahead for them.
