Donate food, clothing and more to Hope House MissionMany of the men, women and children we serve don’t have the essentials for daily living. Help us provide nutritious meals, clothes, school supplies, personal hygiene products, and other essential items so our residents can focus on their path to transformational change. Contact us at or (513) 392-2006 to arrange a collection drive with your friends, co-workers or church. Individuals can drop off donations Monday through Friday from 9:00am to 5:00pm at 1001 Grove Street, Middletown, OH 45044.
