Home Start Hope
Home Start Hope provides brand new essential household items to women rebuilding their lives. We have a house in the city of Rochester where women experience shopping for all the items they need to start their lives over, completely free of charge. These choose from items such as dishes, pots and pans, bedding, towels and so much more! We serve women from Bethany House, Rochester Area Interfaith Hospitality Network, Sojourner Home and Veterans Outreach Center. It may seem like a small thing, picking out towels or bedding but for women who are starting over, it’s so much more than that. It’s about a new beginning, a sense of ownership and a sense of HOPE for a brighter future. When they feel settled at home, they can focus on their families.
