Project Hope For The Homeless

Shelter Needs

On my drive to work several days ago, a news story was talking about impending evictions due to the pandemic.  One woman interviewed said that she had just received a statement for four month’s rent totaling over $5000.00 and had no means to pay it.  The reporter said that this crisis is hitting renters particularly hard; many people have no idea where they will go if forced out. 

Several days later I came across a list of needs for Project Hope for the Homeless in Painesville.  Project Hope operates an adult shelter, a daily shelter for families, and a three-unit transitional housing program for seniors 62 and over.  I first became acquainted with this ministry through parishioner Mary Ellen Fellenstein who enlisted donations from our SRW Seniors’ Group several years ago.  The need was great then so I can’t begin to imagine what they are facing today.

So, for all you avid Amazon shoppers, here is an incredibly easy way to help Project Hope for the Homeless.  Access their wish list at   You can make your selections and they will be delivered directly to Project Hope! 

If you are waking up every morning with a roof over your head and food in the refrigerator, consider using the above link and help those who are dependent on others for those comforts.

Have a peace-filled week!
