 GHH is dedicated in providing a helping hand to underprivileged students through our Nana's Kid's  program!  To better achieve our goals of a greater cause, we offer volunteers the opportunity to directly influence children in a better direction.  Our efforts begin with preparing "school-ready" back packs, which will be made available to hundreds of children in need.  Assistance from volunteers and organizations is strongly encouraged as the more school supplies we are able to provide, the better equipped these students will be to continue on their paths to success.

Please join our donation efforts, as glue sticks, highlighters, rulers, lined filler paper, folders, and any other relevant materials will go a long way in benefiting a child's future.
Donations can be made individually as all school supplies will be of great use.  For organizations willing to contribute on a larger scale, we can provide 10-20 backpacks ready for a stuffing!  To participate in our program.
Please call (714) 636-3690 or email us at  We anticipate having backpacks stuffed by Monday, July 26th.

           Project SAY Lends a Hand to GHH         


Last month, kids from the Project SAY Youth Development Program from the City of Anaheim volunteered their time at Grandma's House of Hope. Project SAY works with troubled youngsters that need behavioral guidance and help with self esteem, by teaching participants social norms, and providing opportunities (like volunteering at GHH) to encounter new experiences and discover new interests. To learn more about Project SAY, click here.

As part of their efforts, this group stuffed and prepared over 1,200 letters to go out for a mailing in order to raise funds for our summer Nana's Food Bag program.
If you are (or know of) an organization that would like to donate their time to GHH, please contact us.

Featured Intern
Kimberly Villalobos-Hutchens
Kimberly began to volunteer at Grandma's House of Hope through a Independent Study at her University believing that this would be a great way for her to serve in the community and learn about people who need a helping hand in society.  As the mother of two beautiful children,  she also realized hardships come along the way, and everyone does not always have someone to help. "That is why I was so eager to volunteer my time and knowledge to this wonderful organization" Kimberly stated.   She will be graduating from CSUDH in December and applying to grad school in social work or law.  After graduation she really wants to lend a helping hand to women that just need that extra love and support to follow their dreams.

Thank you very much for your support to Grandma's House of Hope. It is through your kindness and generosity that GHH continues to fight hunger and homelessness in Orange County. Your contribution helps enhance the lives of women and children who are struggling to survive in your own communities.
God Bless,
