Special Thanks to Career Academy of Beauty 


Career Academy of Beauty students working with our GHH ladies. 


The Career Academy Of Beauty has been a long time supporter of Grandma's House of Hope. Recently their students and directors have offered their expertise with ladies at the shelters feel special and beautiful!

At "The Festival Of Hearts" luncheon, students helped transform 15 ladies into runway divas with incredible hair and make up styles!

A few weeks later, they visited the shelter and offered a special pamper day with hair cuts. This is something that would not be possible if not for their generosity!

A big thank you to Pedro & Cindy and the students of
Career Academy of Beauty for partnering with us and making our ladies beautiful and runway ready

GHH Would Like to Honor our 

"Residents of the Month" 


Congratulations to our residents of the month for

 March and April!

March April 2011 Residents of the Month

Denise:  "The women here are so supportive of one another.  I am still in a battle with breast cancer, already conquering chemo, I am preparing myself for radiation.  I was humbled and honored to know that someone cared enough about me to nominate me for such an honor as resident of the month!"


Amy: "The women at GHH are loving, caring and helpful and I feel very blessed to be in a safe, positive secure home.  I'm happy because it is easy to feel that you're not being recognized for the good things you try to do and that is not the case here."


Judy:  "After losing everything I had  due to debt and falling behind of my rent, Jen'et came to the motel I was staying at and rescued me."   Judy is going to  buy a couple pairs of shorts with her gift card.  "I want to be ready for the summer."


Valorie became a resident at GHH because she was unemployed when her cancer resurfaced and wanted to be close to doctors that saved her 13 years prior.  "I felt blessed and thought it was a nice recognition," when asked how she felt about being resident of the month, Valorie said.



The"Festival of Hearts" Luncheon was Wonderful!
