It’s heating up and we could all use a little more deodorant! … Kidding aside, we need your help!
Home Start’s Communities in Action Program (CinA) helps families move toward safety, empowerment, and connection by providing tools and increasing options for self-determination, financial independence, and healthy choices.
Sometimes for families experiencing crisis, the littlest things like soap or a towel can offer the comfort and dignity necessary to get through. At our offices, Home Start staff offer hygiene packs to vulnerable families and individuals.
This Summer you can help families like these! Here is how:
