Hope through Housing Foundation Emergency Relief and Resilience Fund

​Create a Care Bag Today!

For children, families, and seniors

Looking for something fun to do while staying at home? Hope through Housing is creating care bags for our families and seniors to offer hope during this stressful time. Put a smile on the face of a child or a senior who is having a rough time staying home or feeling isolated.

Hope through Housing has made it easy! We have created virtual registries with Amazon and Target with care bag items. Take a moment to create a care bag for a family or senior from your community. Include a note of encouragement and let them know that you care (see examples below).

All donations can be dropped off or shipped to:

Hope through Housing Foundation
9421 Haven Avenue
Rancho Cucamonga, CA 91730

We need your help writing notes of encouragement to our seniors and families! Please write on a small notecard and mail them to the Hope through Housing Foundation (address above). We will make sure to get them to our residents! Sample notes:

Hi Neighbor,

With everything going on, we wanted to wish you good health and a joyful day!

Your Neighbor,

Hi Neighbor,

Sending you smiles and hugs to uplift your day. Stay safe!

Your Neighbor,

Hi Neighbor,

In these uncertain times, stay positive and know that I am sending my well wishes your way.
