In compliance with Governor DeWine’s “Stay at *Home Order”, HFF continues to serve as an Essential Social Service Agency, providing critical food and resources to our families and children. To maintain the social distancing needed to slow the spread of COVID-19, and for the safety of our families and staff, our staff is working remotely. *Our office will be closed to the visitors from March 23 – April 6, 2020.
Community members and groups wishing to make needed donations of food, household items, baby supplies, etc. should contact Donna Powell 614-715-8342 to schedule a time for delivery.
Donate Goods: The Homeless Families Foundation is grateful for and regularly needs gifts for children and families living in poverty and experiencing homelessness.When considering donating an in-kind gift to HFF ask yourself this question: Is this item in good enough condition for my child or family? If your answer is YES, then it is in good enough condition for the children and families HFF serves. Give from the pile you want to keep, not from the one you want to throw out.
