Home for the Holidays

No child should be homeless. Because so many are, Vision House is here. Thanks to caring and generous people like you, children are coming to live at Vision House with their families and are discovering security, safety… and joy. There are many ways to help during the holidays:

The Giving TreeA great holiday project for your team! carco-giving-tree-example-2015
We provide you with all the materials you need: hand-made gift tags, brochures, instructions, etc. You provide the tree or wreath to display the gift tags. Your friends, staff, and/or clients remove the tag and provide the gift card requested. Gift cards empower homeless parents to purchase their own gifts, groceries, and items consistent with their holiday traditions and culture. Additional gift cards are used throughout the year as needs arise.

gt-2016-image-for-emailContact Vision House to participate! Donating through the Giving Tree helps a homeless family like Casey’s…

“When my son, Casey, and I were homeless, we lost almost everything. We came to Vision House with pretty much just the clothes on our backs. Casey was a pre-teen and growing fast, so he barely fit in the few clothes he had. Vision House gave us gift cards so I could buy him new clothes. Those clothes and new shoes helped him feel more confident when he started his new school.”

Great gift cards to purchase:  Visa, MasterCard, Costco, Safeway, QFC, Subway, Chevron, Shell, Fred Meyer, Target, Walmart, and Starbucks.

For more information, click here. To sign-up to participate, contact Andrea at 425-228-6356, ext. 110.

All gift cards are needed by Monday, December 18, 2017.

Adopt-a-Family
Help a family recovering from homelessness by providing new items they truly need: a coat, a pair of shoes, a shirt, a pair of pants, and $25 grocery gift card. Families will be able to wrap these clothing items and open them at Christmas. The gift card will enable families to purchase their own Christmas dinner. We will provide you a list of each family member’s clothing information. We have families of all sizes, ages and stages:

  • Current resident family – living at a Vision House location
  • Former resident family – graduated to permanent housing, but still in need of a little extra support

For more information, click on this link.

To provide these items for homeless families, contact Karen Dalgardno at 425-228-6356.

All items are needed by Tuesday, December 5, 2017.

Adopt-a-Future Family
Homeless families often arrive at Vision House with nothing. Support a future Vision House family by providing basic household items when they move in. Examples of items needed are new bedding, bath towels, cleaning supplies, etc. Click here to see our entire list of needed items.

To see these and other items for families, please view our AmazonSmile Wish List here. All items will ship directly to our headquarters.

To donate much needed items for future homeless families, contact Vision House at 425-228-6356, or shop online via our AmazonSmile Wish List.
