"There is no better feeling than being clean!" That's what one of our 9 year old guests told me one day while I was working at the shelter. She said "My hair is cleaned, my teeth are cleaned and I am beautiful!" My response to her was "YOU most certainly are!" - Erin Schultz, House of Hope More stories and thank you notes

The Family’s ‘Help for the Homeless’ hygiene drive works with area homeless coalitions to stock the shelves of 80+ homeless and crisis programs in 13 Wisconsin communities in our listening areas. The goal of Help for the Homeless is to supply a year’s worth of product to each agency (In many cases, this is happening!). Donations remain in the communities where they are collected.
