DONATE. Donations of any amount are always welcome. Convenient Paypal and credit card donations are accepted.
More than ever the homeless need our help. Long term unemployment & underemployment take a serious toll on the families and women with children who use our services. As the need grows, our supplies often run dangerously low.
Simple needs that we take for granted, like toilet paper, socks, and a hot cup of coffee mean a lot to someone who has nowhere to go.
Hands of Hope is a locally chartered non-profit corporation formed to provide supportive services to homeless families with children, seeking to alleviate the conditions leading to chronic homelessness. While our motivation is rooted in the charitable traditions of all world religions, Hands of Hope is independent of any specific religious group. We welcome participation by all persons of good will regardless of faith affiliation.
The Hands of Hope Resource Center is in a newly remodeled 6,000 sq. ft. building. Our current services for homeless families include:
- showers, bathrooms & laundry facilities
- information & referral services
- compassionate partnering to homeless families
- Coordination of winter shelter resources and other ancillary services will be added as population needs are determined and resources allow.
- To provide supportive services to homeless school-aged children, preschool siblings and their families.
- Basic services for homeless children and their families, as referred primarily by local school districts
- Tutor and encourage children and parents for school readiness and educational success
- Life management skills and supportive counseling for parents
In Memory of Ed Tomei
We are deeply saddened by the untimely death of Ed Tomei, who donated hundreds of hours as our contractor of record in building the Hands of Hope service center. Husband, father, friend, community leader, and the epitome of a Godly man…it is no surprise that our only pictures of Ed show him at work.
Thanks to Sutter Community Bank who hosted a free document shredding day in April for its customers, and accepted donations for Hands of Hope. The group collected over sixty jugs of laundry detergent, nearly a hundred other items, and $150 in cash for us.
Thanks to the members of the Butte College Registered Nursing Program who recently collected over 4,000 donated personal care items for use by guests at Hands of Hope.
