Hesed House is grateful to individuals, businesses, organizations and faith–based groups that enable it to open its doors 365 days a year. As you can imagine, the cost of operating its two facilities is not insignificant – from the standpoint of staffing and volunteer efforts to financial and material needs – to serve approximately 400 men, women and children a day.
