Help Brighten the Holidays for Your Neighbors

2021 Has Been Another Tough Year

Even as the economy improves, many in the Tri Cities could use some extra help this year. Difficulty making ends meet is still an issue. Older adults on fixed incomes continue to stretch their dollars. Lack of permanent housing remains. As uncertainty about the future lingers, we invite you to partner with the Human Services Department to support families, individuals, seniors, and their beloved pet companions.  

When you make a gift to Giving Hope this holiday season, you help your neighbors by fulfilling wish lists for the holidays or by making a financial contribution to help cover the most urgent of needs.
