Fill the House

We rely on our communities to help supply items for the kitchen, pantry, laundry room and guest rooms so we can keep our doors open for families who may be unable to pay for their stay with us. We invite schools, churches, individuals, families, organizations and employers from Shiawassee, Clinton, Eaton, Ionia and Isabella Counties to set up a wish list drive to help us make our House a comfortable home for guests.
