Update: COVID-19


COVID-19: January 2021 Update

2020 challenged us in unprecedented ways. However, with the support of our community, Homes with Hope was able to expand our services and provide uninterrupted assistance so nobody in need of food or shelter was turned away from our doors. We have followed the recommendations of local and state officials for best practices at our facilities. The Gillespie Center & Hoskins Place reopened after necessary renovations were completed to comply with safety guidelines, however, our buildings remain closed to the public. At this time, we are not accepting donations of furniture, clothing, and household items as we continue to follow health and safety protocols to protect our clients, staff, and community members.

Due to the pandemic's significant impact on the homeless population, our unwavering dedication to serving these individuals and families is more essential than it has ever been. Please consider helping those most vulnerable in our community by clicking here and making a donation.

Our Community Kitchen Volunteer Program is accepting prepared meals. For your safety, the drop-off of meals is contactless. Please wear a mask when entering the Gillespie Center Courtyard and leave your prepared lunch or dinner on the designated table.
