Container Conversions
Communities Changed

There are a plethora of opportunities to become involved with Homes of Living Hope. With all of the need in the world, there is no limit to the amount of help we can use. There are many ways to donate resources, money, time and talent towards a cause that interests you! Your contributions, no matter how large or small, make a huge impact in the lives of people around the world.

Where the money goes

Administrative Costs

Project Expenses


Gifts in Kind

Homes of Living Hope staff and project sponsors work on a strictly volunteer basis. As an audited 501 (c)3 charity, all donations made to Homes of Living Hope support the production of service-providing facilities, with minimal overhead costs.

Homes of Living Hope will accept unrestricted gifts as well as gifts restricted for specific projects or services. These gifts may be in the form of cash, equipment, stocks, property, or in-kind services on behalf of Homes of Living Hope. Contributions may be received for all Homes of Living Hope projects as well as to support general operating and capital development.

A key aspect of each and every Homes of Living Hope project is the volunteers. Without volunteers, the cost of the transforming containers into facilities would be significantly higher. There are jobs for everyone, from young children who can help paint, to experienced contractors that install structural features. Whether you have a few hours or a few weeks of time to volunteer, there is a job waiting for you!

Double Your Donation with a Corporate Matching Gift

Did you know that your generous donation to Homes of Living Hope could be doubled at no cost to you? Many companies have Matching Gift Programs that will match the amount of your tax deductible donation. See if your company will match your gift and double your donation!

Donated building supplies and materials can significantly reduce the cost of the project. We also fill each container with humanitarian aid before shipping that benefit recipient communities. Click here to see examples of supplies, building materials, and aid that each project needs. As always, feel free to contact us if you have something you would like to contribute to a current or future project.

This is a fantastic opportunity for my students. This is a real-world project for them. They take what they learn in the classroom, apply it, and know it will actually impact someone’s life.

David Clark, design and engineering teacher at Monarch High School, project leader

HOLH is a very innovative way of using available resources to support third world countries and their countries. It's great they utilize volunteers for much of the work they do and bring communities together. Volunteers spend little time to make a big impact.

Kishawn Leuthauser, Director of Grants at Price Foundation

For the people who have been part of this work in partnership with HOLH, for the people who have given of themselves and their services and for the people who have given financially or other ways to take this container form the US to Africa. Thank you. Thank you for demonstrating love in such an excellent way.

Dr. Florence Muindi, Life in Abundance, project recipient

The students, the parents, the community, all the people that have been involved. It's no one person's project. It's no one person's success. What's amazing is having students see things that you don't see. Discovering things you never have realized.

Leonard Herman, Supervisor of Fine and Practical Arts for Bridgewater-Raritan High School, Project Leader

We really liked the idea that you can make an impact somewhere else across the planet by being here at home, and in the process connect to each other through this service to God, and it really did turn out to be that way.

Susan McDonnell, project volunteer
