"East Metro has given me a support network. They have come through for me when I wasn't able to do it alone. They support my children with tutoring in the school months and activities in the summer. They paid for my children to go to camp, an experience they may never have had, and won't ever forget."
– East Metro Women’s Council participant
Holiday Giving: Home for the Holidays
"There's no place like home for the holidays..." and no one knows that better than the residents living in our supportive housing programs. To make this holiday season brighter, we need your help! Join in the tradition of making our families feel at "Home for the Holidays" with our holiday giving programs!
Holiday House Sales
This holiday season you can also help us raise money when you are shopping around town! Our host sites offer customers the opportunity to support us through the purchase of a $1 laminated house, which is then displayed at the business. All money from the holiday house sales is used to purchase gift cards for our families throughout the year for basic needs such as diapers, bus cards, gas, etc. Be sure to stop by our host sites and get your holiday house today!

Thank you to everybody who signed up to sponsor a family! Thanks to your generosity, all of our families have been matched with a sponsor!
If you were interested in sponsoring a family but didn't get one, consider giving gift cards to Target, Walmart, Aldi, Festival, Cub, CVS, Walgreens or Holiday. Gift cards help our families with their basic needs throughout the year, so your gift will continue to help a family into the new year!
