When my team at work was awarded a prize of $25,000 to be given to a charity, we looked for a local organization that benefitted our local community. I recommended Hebron House of Hospitality which runs shelters and assists homeless people in Waukesha (WI) County. What better use of our prize money could there be than to help those who have nothing, who have no place to live and no means for basic survival.

My work team has made a commitment to partner with the Hebron House throughout the year. We have taken up collections of food and toiletries, given cash donations, and held a clean-up/fix-up day where we painted, repaired, landscaped and cleaned three of the shelters with a team of 50 volunteers.

The people at Hebron House are compassionate and dedicated to their mission. They provide the basic needs for those who most need it, and assist them through the maze of bureaucracy to help them find a more permanent lifestyle.

Our donations and volunteer efforts were greatly appreciated by the Hebron House staff and clients.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

I was very pleased and proud to have organized the clean-up/fix-up day. Our 50 volunteers made a huge impact on the physicsal appearance of the buildings and improved morale of staff and residents.

My experience with Hebron House is as a member of a community volunteer group that supports the work of social service organizations in our area. Hebron House was selected for the past three years because they have done an outstanding job of providing for the homeless in our community. I have personally found the administration and staff to be extremely dedicated to their mission of providing for both the basic needs and personal support of those they serve. When visiting the shelters, I noticed that the residents work together to support each other and are very engaged in their own personal care. Everyone is so willing to pitch in and help.

The Hebron House help and care to the homeless and mentally ill indivuduals of Waukesha County WI. They not only do it with the logistical needs but they care for each and everyone of their guest.
The problem that they are facing is that Waukesha County is one of the most afluent counties in the State, so many do not think there are homeless indivuduals and families in the city and county.
The Hebron House is doing a great job this year of reaching to the community and county to increase awarness of the homeless needs.

As a Pastoral Associate I had many conversations with individuals that are living in the Hebron House and I now that they feel safe and care for during their stay at the Hebron House.

The need for recycling is what stands up in my mind. We all need to take care of the earth as well as for the homeless, if not soon we will not have a home.

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization?

Definitely

How much of an impact do you think this organization has?

Life-changing

How did you learn about this organization?

They are the only organization that serve the homeless in Waukesha City and county and we have been volunteers through the parish as a family and now that I work next to them I do offer my services as much as I can do. I am glad that they are trying to be more visible to the rest of the city and county
