Guest Profile

Allen arrived at our shelter on January 23, 2019. He immediately began utilizing services and doing the hard work of rebuilding his life.
Allen said, "The shelter staff and volunteers make you feel feel like a human being and like you are not worthless." 

The shelter gave Allen more than a place to rest his head at night. Allen found hospitality and hope. He has moved from the shelter to HHC's Veteran's House and will be moving to permanent housing soon.

Winter Warming Center Success

From November until just this week, our Winter Warming Center successfully served as a place of warmth and safety for those experiencing homelessness. This year, we utilized two rooms in our administration building to make sure that no one was turned away from shelter in the cold weather.  On average, we had 20-25 guests per night in our Warming Center. 
Finding Hope at HHC
We all know that our warmhearted staff
help to transform the lives of our guests, but  they also have transformed the life of this sweet kitten, who was appropriately named "Hope" by staff.

When Hope landed at HHC, she had an
infected eye, ringworm, and a badly injured tail that had to be amputated. Shannon
Santini, Rachel Perkins, Teri Natoli and Mirca
Reyes decided to keep her. These staff members got her vet care and nursed her back to health. Shannon started a personal GoFundMe page to raise funds for her vet care. Mirca takes Hope home with her on the weekends, so Hope's not alone. Hope, like our guests, reminds us all that lives can be transformed with care and love. The emotional connection between animals and humans, just like the connection between human beings, has the power to heal and transform.
    Thank you for your continued support.
