VOLUNTEER VIRTUALLY

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.

Virtual Home Sponsorship

Individuals And Small Groups

Raise $6,000 by holding your own campaign within the ASOH Go Fund Me Page. You can also donate $6,000 and go through the entire process of creating a new home, all from the comfort and safety of yours. You will receive a video featuring the beneficiary of your generous sponsorship, and details about the beneficiary’s current living situation, all that they have overcome, and their goals for their future. These goals will now become much more attainable thanks to the home that you are helping to make possible.
You can create and/or send custom items to be included in the home. Our team will then create the staged home from the ASOH warehouse. You will receive a video that captures this very powerful moment and what it means to the recipient.

If interested, please contact us at home@asenseofhome.org

Kit Creations

Individuals And Small Groups

Prepare welcome baskets and kits for our ASOH recipients. The kits and baskets are designed to serve a specific function or to be placed in a specific room of the home (for example, cooking kits, bathroom essentials kits, etc.). You can find a full list of baskets and kits that we create here.

Kits will be placed directly into homes as soon as they are delivered to our warehouse. Watch this video from one of our ASOH volunteers on how easy, fun, and impactful it is helping to create these kits

Books for Kids

Individuals and Small Groups

ASOH is in need of culturally diverse books to create libraries of love in each home.

1) Please hold a book drive. To participate in the book drive, you can collect donated books or purchase new ones. We ask that you find inspiration for the book drive by referring to our Love Library booklists.

2) We have done much research to create the Love Library booklists and we encourage you to create these Love Libraries at home for your own families. When you do purchase any of these books, we ask that you also purchase one for ASOH and have it sent directly to our warehouse at: 3457 West El Segundo Blvd., Unit A, Hawthorne, CA 90250.

3) Since we may never be able to get all these books into each home that was created in the past and will be created in the future, we welcome videos of these books being read for the children of the young mothers that we serve. You can find a booklist for children here. Please reach out to let us know about your book reading campaign.

Frame Pictures

Individuals and Small Groups

Help A Sense of Home print and frame pictures for upcoming home creations. ASOH will send electronic photos that you will then print and place in frames. Framed photos can be delivered or shipped to the ASOH warehouse. This all happens within a two-week period. We highly encourage participants to plan ahead and hold a “frame drive” within your community. Join forces with local community members to gather beautiful frames to be filled with wonderful memories. Printed photos will be lovingly placed within frames, helping to make the recipient’s space truly feel like a home.
