Your generosity powers our mission, so we’re making sure we use your gifts wisely. Here’s a wish-list of items for our shelters, updated monthly so you can see what we need most and where you can make the biggest impact.


Visit our Meal Train or email Elena Rinelli at erinelli@hebronhouse.org to find out even more ways you can get involved!


What’s new this month? PONCHOS and SWEATPANTS OF ALL SIZES!


As many of our guests are without vehicles and the weather starts to get rainy, commuting becomes even more challenging. Most of our guests walk or use public transportation to get to work, doctor appointments, etc. Rain ponchos help keep our guests dry and healthy!


While sweatpants seem like an unexpected ask, most of our guests come to us with limited clothing options. We try our best to make our guests feel comfortable as they are working on overcoming hard times. Sweatpants will help us take steps to achieve that as they provide a comfortable layer of clothing for the people who stay with us.
