Holiday Hopes

Thank you for being a HOLIDAY HOPES HERO!

Your generosity and overwhelming support helped make the Holidays at The House of the Good Shepherd sparkle and shine! You opened your hearts and compassionately gave to our Holiday Hopes Campaign that provided holiday gifts and support to approximately 200 families and 700 children this year! What a difference you made; You are a true Holiday Hopes Hero! 

The House will celebrate 150 years of service to our communities this year. Our mission would not be possible without dedicated and loyal friends like you. Your donation holds more than a monetary value. It is a child’s heart filled with hope and love because you let them know through your gift that they matter and someone cares.

On behalf of all of us at The House, we share our sincerest gratitude and wish you a New Year filled with new beginnings, good health, and many joy-filled days. Here’s to the next 150 years of changing children’s lives!

Thank You For Providing Holiday Cheer to a Child!

Holiday Hopes provided gifts to my grandchildren

and household items for all of us. It hasn’t been an easy road recently, but Christmas morning was filled with joy and laughter.

All I wanted for Christmas was to put up a tree.

in memory of my sister who died. Little did I know that gifts underneath it would be for me. Holiday Hopes helped me to begin to heal and have hope for the future.

A sports team sweatshirt–WOW!

I’ve never had anything like it before. I feel so good about myself when I wear it.
