The Hope Chest

The Chrishaun Foundation Hope Chest is a very vital and essential toolbox full of the most essential needs for every person who is beginning to start life over. To begin their life after….

This concept was one that was given to me by my father. When I was growing up, it was a very personal concept for our family that each of us had to have a hope chest. A hope chest would be filled with our most essential things to begin our new life wherever that would be. Whether that would be married, college or both. Whenever our family was shopping, my parents would strategically purchase an item or two. This was to ensure that by the time I turned 18 and became a young woman, I had everything in my hope chest that I could ever need or desire to leave home. This hope chest was filled with my hopes and dreams for the new chapter in my life.
So with that same concept, we would like to provide our survivors with their hopes and dreams redefined. Most times when survivors arrive they are coming to us with absolutely nothing. Why?? Most times they are fleeing their abuser or their predator. They may also have lost everything in other ways, ie. disasters…
There will be times where we have a place for them to live but there’s absolutely nothing there. This hope chest would be filled with everything they could possibly need to begin again.
