Creating Opportunity | $1,000/year or $83/month
Your gift would help GSH provide a security deposit or first month’s rent to a homeless or at-risk household facing housing barriers such as financial/budgeting problems, mental or physical health issues, or domestic abuse, and therefore helping them to cross the bring to affordable housing in the community. Last year, we supported 30 households in our HTP program.
Inspiring Hope | $500/year or $41/month
Your gift would help GSH provide 12 households moving into our housing program with necessities like linens, dishes and towels, thereby allowing them to focus on more important regularly budgeted expenses like healthcare and transportation. Last year, three households graduated from our ABC program, and moved into long-term, permanent housing.
Offering a Hand Up | $250/year or $21/month
Your gift would help GSH provide 25 households moving into our housing programs with welcome baskets filled with cleaning supplies, grocery cards, or hygiene products, enabling them to take care of their new apartment and to stick to their budget immediately after being housed. Last year, 14 new households moved into our ABC housing program.

Your support is essential to provide our community’s working-class families with a fresh start toward stable housing. Through the generosity of individuals and organizations, GSH is able to ensure that local families in need receive the tools to create their own success and stable futures.
