Why are gift cards so special?

gift cards
GHH ladies love gift cards.

 One of the reasons gift cards are such a blessing to the women and children in our programs is that it offers them the rare gift of choice - to pick out something special just for them.  In many cases our program participants have been deprived of the right to make choices for themselves.
This is a simple act that goes a long way for self empowerment!

Please consider sending a gift card in any amount to: Grandma's House of Hope
  (174 W. Lincoln Ave., Anaheim, CA 92805).

Featured Intern 
Carmen Saavedra 
carmen august

Carmen graduated from California State University, Long Beach in May 2010.  She received her Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice.
"Interning at Grandma's House of Hope was a great experience. The reason I decided to intern at GHH was because I knew my work was going to directly help other people in the community."

Carmen knew that the field of Criminal Justice will be rough but with the encouragement of her family and the inspiration of her daughter, she would overcome the hardships that working in the industry  brings. Presently, Carmen is looking forward to going back to Long Beach State to receive her Master's in Criminal Justice while also trying to find a job in the Probation field, which is what she truly aspires to do.
