Home Sweet Home Initiative

Loisann’s Hope House invites you to participate in the Home Sweet Home Initiative. This program is designed to magnify the impact we can have on families by providing them with an organized assortment of commonplace household items as they transition from homelessness to housing.

Many families move into permanent housing without everyday items necessary to sustain a household. The Home Sweet Home initiative connects families with people or organizations that “adopt a family” and gathers the selection of items to be donated to the family for their new home. Items needed by families are varied and encompass all facets of daily living, including:
