Give the gift of hope this year with a donation to Heather House, still the only permanent homeless shelter in Fairfield. For 10 years, Heather House residents have been achieving success, thanks to your generosity.
Over 10,000 lives have been touched and changed because of Heather House. Thousands of children are in school, receiving health care, and being fed.
Heather House allows people to regroup, find work, and move into a sustainable lifestyle.
“Heather House plays a key role in this community as part of the bedrock that supports families when they’ve fallen beyond where they can recover on their own,” Christopher Cassels, Social Services Supervisor, H&SS Child Welfare Services.
We cannot do this work without you. Please open your hearts and wallets so that we can continue to provide a temporary respite for the most vulnerable of our society – giving a hand up, in their most dire time of need.
Our goal is to raise $35,000 from the community. Monthly pledge donations are easy. Write a check now or set up monthly, automatic payments.
Homelessness affects us all. Everyone knows of a family, child, or parent who has been hurt by these economic conditions. What if your job and savings disappeared? Now consider the impact of having someone give you a helping hand. Donate today.

Hard work and encouragement led to success for Jack and Toni.
With the promise of a job, the couple moved from Minnesota with their two kids. Jack and Toni both found work but soon were laid off. Without money for rent, the family came to Heather House.
Wanting desperately to find work and support his family, within a few weeks Jack took a position at a local car wash. Jack was soon promoted and within 45 days, the family had saved enough money to move into their own apartment.
Jack is now running the business. Jack is “giving back” by hiring Heather House clients who want to work.
Thank you to Shared Spoon and Puerto Vallarta restaurant in Suisun. They hosted a Winter Wonderland event last week and gave proceeds to Heather House. Please support these businesses who give back to the community!
And thank you to K.I.Jones for donating a year's supply of toilet paper, paper towels, and cleaning supplies! Way to go!
Finally, a great big shout out to the leadership club at Green Valley Middle School for Operation Underpants! Their gifts of underwear, toiletries, and coats are a huge help to Heather House clients.
