House of Hope provides quality, free clothing, shoes and accessories for men, women and children.
From 7:00 am to 10:00 am on Mondays, clients may select items from the boutique with assistance from volunteers familiar with the inventory. In 2017, almost 130,000 articles of clothing and 5,168 pairs of shoes were distributed to 8,570 clients.
Among the most requested items are men's tennis shoes, work boots, and jeans and shorts in sizes 30 to 34.
New underwear and socks for men are in high demand.
Bedding, towels and toiletries are another great need for HoH clients. Toothbrushes, toothpaste, shaving cream, disposable razors, nail trimmers, insect repellent, toilet paper, baby wipes, diapers, batteries, flashlights, deodorant, soap, combs and hairbrushes are always welcomed.
Because HoH serves "long-term campers," the ministry seeks donations of sleeping bags, 9' x 7' tents, and backpacks.
Clients can donate community service hours to the outreach in exchange for certain big-ticket items.
Donations of clean, quality items can be dropped off from 11 am to 1:30 pm on Mondays, and 8:30 am to 1:30 pm on Wednesdays. If you don't need a receipt, a donation box sits in the parking lot on the west side of the distribution site.
