The Homeless Families Foundation has been chosen by Payless ShoeSource to be part of this year’s Payless GivesTM Shoes 4 Kids program! We’re one of many nonprofit groups chosen to receive coupons to give to children in need. Children we serve here in our community will be able to redeem these coupons at Payless for a free new pair of shoes.

Holiday Information

As the holiday season is approaching we at The Homeless Families Foundation are looking forward to another successful season. Last year we were able to provide a wonderful holiday for approximately 225 children, helping over 100 families.

For the past several years we have set up a Holiday gift “store” where the mothers and fathers could go “shopping” to choose gifts for their children. We did this as a way to more involve the parents in the Holiday season. We helped current families and some previous families that found themselves still needing assistance.

We are going to be doing the same thing this year and are asking for donations for newborns through the age of 18. (See list below) We need to have new toys and clothing into our main office by Thursday, December 9th. We are also asking for donations of gift wrap, tags and tape.

It is such a joyous time at The Homeless Families Foundation and without community support we would not be able to provide such a wonderful Holiday for our families. We thank you in advance for your support.

Should you have any questions please call Karie @ (614) 461-9247 or by e-mail
