Blessings Bags are distributed by Vision House to families we are interviewing who may be living outside or in a car, but these kits can also be assembled at home in a gallon-sized Ziploc, and distributed to neighbors in need when you cross paths. For a list of items to include in a Blessing Bag, see here.
Thank you for making homeless families feel welcome in their new apartments. Families often arrive after living in a car, tent or even a garage. With a stable home, they can get back on their feet. By providing these household items, you are helping them to feel safe and cared for. Thank you!
