They are calling.
Calling for help. For safety. For hope.
Women and children, whether it’s due to the lack of a job, underemployment, relationship change, tragedy, or addiction need our help. In Lenawee County, there are currently no viable shelters for homeless women and children.
These women with children are calling every week in desperate need of somewhere safe to lie down their heads, fill their bellies, and give their lives hope. It breaks our heart to have to turn them away with no answers.
For a dozen years, Neighbors of Hope has been a vital force in our community, providing hope and help to the homeless and addicted single men, nourishing the underfed, and clothing those in need. None of this could have been possible without your generous donations. Now we have an opportunity to expand this ministry to help the homeless women and children of Lenawee County.
They are our neighbors. They are calling for help. Will you help us answer?

How is this campaign different from last year’s campaign?
Last year’s campaign helped us secure funding for the operating expenses to launch and run a program. This campaign is to secure funds needed to acquire and renovate the property.

Once the property is acquired, renovated, and ready for occupation, we will hire the appropriate staff to launch the program. This is a long term commitment to our community.
