Services Available:

Clothing & Household Items
Clothing, shoes, underwear and warm coats during winter. Dishes, pans, sheets, towels, blankets and knick knacks make life easier for those in need. We also offer books, games, puzzles and toys.

The Market
The Market is our onsite “store” for hygiene and cleaning supplies, paper products and baby items such as diapers and wipes. Emergency food bags are also available for those living in the outer areas of the county, as well as for those who are homeless. The Market can be accessed once per month per family.

Assumption Emergency Assistance
The Church of the Assumption maintains an active presence in Hope House by offering small financial grant assistance on Monday and Friday. This ministry is funded by the parishioners of Assumption parish and works in conjunction with a group of like-minded churches called the Shared Support Network.
