Financial donations are the best way to provide immediate assistance to those in need of support. Donating to HopeWorks is easy and no amount is too small to make a difference!

Clothing Donations

Furniture Donations

We accept a very limited number of furniture donations based on need. Please send photos and dimensions to donations@hopeworksofhc.org.

Wellness Locker

The HopeWorks Survivors’ Wellness Locker, part of the Hopeworks Survivors’ Health Project, contains essential wellness items to replenish the body and mind.

For many survivors, an “ordinary day” is extraordinarily difficult to manage. Survivors experience a wide range of symptoms including difficulty walking, depression, unrelenting exhaustion, constant pain and gastrointestinal problems. Many of the treatment modalities for these conditions are not covered by insurance. Additionally, it can be costly to maintain a regular schedule of treatments.

HopeWorks alleviates some of the financial challenges by maintaining the Wellness Locker. The Locker is available to survivors who are members of the HopeWorks Survivors’ Health Project.

Safe House Wishlist
