Home Sweet Home Ministries

Event Activities


Things are definitely different this year, but Home Sweet Home is blessed that you could join us. Please see below for materials that will hopefully keep you active and engaged as you spend a night in your car. As you go along, if you come across something that you want to discuss further or simply have a question, you can jump on Zoom to talk with HSHM staff-Leslie, Todd, Debbie, and Matt- anytime from 8 pm to Midnight on February 5th. We hope you have fun exploring and learning more about Home Sweet Home and just how important your support is. Thank you!
