Hesed House is grateful to individuals, businesses, organizations and faith–based groups that enable it to keep its doors open 24/7, 365 days a year. As you can imagine, the cost of operating its 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 every day. Your support is greatly appreciated. Once again, thank you!site 6 volunteer 4 site 7 12345
