Homeless Family Center

Homeless Family Center

The Hope for Families Center formerly known as The Homeless Family Center’s mission is to provide opportunities for homeless families to end homelessness by achieving self-sufficiency through education, living wages, and permanent housing. We invite members of your organization to participate with us in National Hunger and Homeless Awareness week (NHHAW Week), November 14th through November 22nd, 2015.

Held each year the week before Thanksgiving, NHHAW week helps us to remember what we are thankful for and to share our compassions for what our less fortunate homeless neighbors face every day. Together we can work toward a world that ends hunger and homelessness one family, one child, one individual at a time. NHHAW week offers everyone to the opportunity to contribute to a national social movement.
