House of Hope Wishlist

uploaded photo for registry

Welcome to our SoKind registry! Your support gives House of Hope moms the tools they need to succeed. We happily accept gently used items as well as new items.

This website compiles our wishlist items, but does not sell them. If you would like to 'claim' a gift, be sure to click on the 'Give this gift' button so the gift will be claimed in your name, and so that we won't receive any duplicates. Then, you can follow our instructions on how or where to give the gift.

Thank you for supporting our vision to end the cycle homelessness in the Cedar Valley.
