Hi Friends! 'Tis the (rainy) season which means lots of mowing!
If you're planning to upgrade with a new mower and looking for a home for your used (but working) mower, please consider donating your used (but working) mower to The Home Connection program.
We have upwards of 25 lawns to mow in our supportive housing program and can always use them. Please contact Sergio or Melanie at 515-244-9748 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Thank you! ... See MoreSee Less
Happy May Day! Once a week, we like to recognize families staying in the shelter that are going above and beyond helping with cleaning, assisting other families and, overall, being great guests.
This is where we need your help! We are running low on small denomination gift cards and other incentives. These could include things like passes to fun places in town, movie tickets or other small items not normally available to our guests. Items can be dropped off to our shelter location at 3001 Grand Avenue.
Thank you! ... See MoreSee Less
