In preparation for opening our House of Hope nine bedroom emergency homeless shelter, opportunities are now available for families, friends, companies, churches, organizations or associations to adopt one (or more) of our nine bedrooms.
The House of Hope will serve young adults 18-24 years old, who identify as LGBTQ, are being stigmatized, discriminated against or are the targets of violence.
House of Hope Bedroom Wish List Each bedroom will need to be provided with the following items:
- Twin bed frame
- Twin box spring
- Twin mattress
- Wardrobe and/ or dresser (depends on size of room)
- Waterproof mattress cover/ liner
- 2 Sets of sheets

The collaboration between YCC, Changing Homelessness and JASMYN seeks to provide early intervention services for the young adult homeless population. This includes a safe place to stay where their physical, emotional and mental well-being needs can also be met.
During their stay, staff will help residents focus on the following areas:
- Life skills training
- Mental health counseling
- Academic monitoring and support
- Connection for stable and permanent housing
- Access to medical care
- Recreational activities
- Career development training
- Safe place to sleep
- Three meals and two snacks a day
Each room will be dedicated to the group that is adopting it with a plaque to be displayed outside the room for 3 years.
There will be a volunteer day where the groups adopting a room will come in and set-up their room! This day is TBD.
Want to help but don’t have time to shop and/or decorate? For a monetary donation, we will shop for you and decorate if you need us to.
Make it easy! You can order on Amazon Smile and have your items delivered to YCC, or you can bring your items on the date of set-up, or you can have your items delivered ahead of time.
Items in your adopted bedroom can be previously used except for sheets, pillows and mattresses.
