Provide a healthy, child-friendly meal on a Saturday or Sunday evening for the Families staying at Hawthorn Hill's New Directions Shelter. Dinner must be dropped off by 4:45pm and may be ready-to-eat or can be cooked/heated up at the shelter. Dinner would serve approximately 25-30 people, 2/3 of those children. No desserts necessary. This is an easy and fun way to volunteer at the shelter, whether you only want to provide one meal, or meals on a regular basis. Please call Melanie at 515-244-9748 or Kiana at 515-243-7456 to schedule. Thank you!

To establish and operate housing programs for homeless families with children that help them obtain permanent housing and to provide services to help families achieve economic self-sufficiency.

Families served are very low-income, and approximately 50% are of minority/ethnic status. During 2011, Hawthorn Hill served 153 homeless families, including 363 children, through our two programs who otherwise may have been living on the streets.
