HOPE for HOUSING

Please note: Hope for Housing cards will not be sold during the summer months of JULY and AUGUST. 


Card sales will resume in SEPTEMBER.

Hope for Housing is an interfaith program designed to raise funds for the Central Massachusetts Housing Alliance (CMHA). These funds go directly to homelessness prevention programs and provide vital support for individuals and families who are seeking to find stable housing.

IT'S A "WIN-WIN" PROGRAM FOR EVERYONE!

Parishioners purchase full-value gift cards to local stores

The stores donate 3% to 10% of the profits to HFH

At-risk families in our community get the help they need!

 

St. John's is participating in the Hope for Housing program by selling gift cards at all masses on the 1st and 3rd full weekends of each month. Gift cards are available for purchase by cash or check (sorry, no credit cards) in a range of denominations for the following grocery stores and businesses:
