HHF in the News: Grand Opening April 27, 2019
Martha and her team of volunteers welcomed the community to the new HHF Resource Center on April 27, 2019. Guests were greeted with tours of the facility and engaged in conversations about the need to assist local families with food from the HHF Abundance food program as well as clothes, supplies and "starter" kits for families moving from homelessness to new homes.

Latest Message from MarthaHis House Foundation and the Abundance Food Share Program is up and running. We are helping an average of 7 families a month that are leaving homelessness with what we call “starter kits” for starting over.
The starter kits have brand new pots and pans, dishes, silverware, dish soap, laundry soap, shampoo,soap, and many other basic needs. The His House volunteers deliver mattresses, a sofa, dining set and dressers.
We feel so blessed to be able to share your donations with families that have been homeless..some of them for years.
We were also able to invite all the people in the Families Moving Forward program that are currently homeless to the Resource Center. We had 31 adults and children shopping through the wonderful donations. Some of the families have only the clothes they can carry when they enter the program. We want them to have whatever we have been blessed with to share. And we also want people to know we will be here when they get their apartment to help furnish their new home.
Thank you from everyone at His House. Without you we would not be able to continue our ministry of serving the most vulnerable community members.

Message from Martha, March 2019When I thought about writing a sharing story this month I didn’t expect to have too many stories to choose from.
We opened up the Resource Center serving people leaving homelessness. We have furniture starter kits, kitchen kits, bathroom kits and bedroom kits. All with new items like pots and pans, cleaning products and a new My Pillow!
In the last 6 weeks His House delivered furniture and supplies kits to seven families leaving homelessness and starting over.
We started the month picking up the donations from a six bedroom house...and on that same day delivering those donations to a single mom with five children that had just gotten housing that day! Dressers, mattresses, chairs, sofa....everything she needed.
When a local single mom needed a car we had someone add it to their prayer requests at church. The day it was emailed out someone donated a wonderful van for her. His House transferred the title and expedited it so she was driving it a week later.
We have had wonderful food donations from our food sharing program called Abundance. Because the foods are already prepared we can deliver them to families that are homeless or living in transition that may not have access to a full kitchen.
His House wants to thank everyone for welcoming us to your community. We look forward to sharing our “stories of sharing.”
