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

Donate $7,000 or create your own fundraising campaign here and raise the $7,000 to sponsor a virtual home creation. You will receive a video of the beneficiary receiving their home creation and their words of appreciation for what goals will now be attainable thanks to the home that you made possible. The video can be dedicated to a loved one or a group of individuals.

Kit Creations

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.

Especially important is providing essential items for kids: clothing, shoes, school supplies, toys, and games. Click here to see how to create these kits.
