Because Everyone Deserves Dignity

Hesed House's mission is to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, shelter the homeless and give people the chance to hope again.

Hesed House is a national model for ending homelessness - one person, one family at a time. It is the culmination of nearly three decades of strategic evolution from a formerly acceptable model of "eats and sheets" to a Comprehensive Homeless Resource Center - a campus of centralized highly skilled professionals collaborating to provide the tools necessary to help individuals and families break free of the shackles binding them to homelessness.


How You Can Help

Whether you choose to lend your time and talents by volunteering, writing a check, planning a fundraising event or coordinating a collection of food, holiday toys, and warm winter clothes, ALL demonstrations of support are appreciated.
