CHARITY PROJECT

Warm Hearts & Homes Charity Project (WH&H) was organized to assist families transitioning into permanent housing from an emergency shelter by helping them get a jump-start on building their new home. Often times, families end up in emergency shelters as a result of abuse, economic hardships, health burdens or natural devastations. Whatever the cause may be, every family deserves a home.

WH&H supports nonprofit organizations that provide permanent housing for displaced families by collaboratively ensuring sustainable living. We believe that every home should be blessed with love, unity and personal style. It inspires us to create a dream home that any family can hope for. It is our mission to give families a head start on their journey to a new and fulfilled life by providing home accents and soft furnishings that will help develop the confidence and motivation needed to sustain a quality living for themselves and their dependents.

We want to build stronger families by encouraging ownership of decisions, evoking accountability in actions and maintaining productivity in caring for their family.

WH&H also provides complimentary mentorship sessions to teach home management practices and family planning, as well as aiding families to accomplish personal goals.

Our principles are simple: Educate. Demonstrate. Elevate.
