purpleDividerBarOnWhiteHome and Hope Capital Campaign of 2023–24

Your donations to this campaign will help us to pay off the loan on our second residential campus, which our young families already enjoy so much. We were blessed to pay off the loan on our first residential campus in less than two years – we’re praying we can meet or exceed that goal this time!

If you would like to help us achieve our campaign goal of $300,000, we would be deeply grateful.

Amazon Smile

For a simple way to donate money to a charity of your choice, use ‘Amazon Smile.’ One half of 1% of all your Amazon purchase dollars goes to your favorite charity with no cost to you. If you spend $500 a month on Amazon products, $2.50 a month goes to the charity of your choice. It doesn’t seem like much, but if 50 people ‘donate’ to just one charity, that could mean $125 a month to that charity (or more if you spend more on Amazon products).

Here’s all you have to do:

On your phone:

1. Open the Amazon app.
2. Select the main menu and tap on “AmazonSmile” within Programs & Features.
3. Select “Holy Ground Shelter For Homeless” as your charity.
4. Follow the on-screen instructions to activate AmazonSmile in the mobile app.

On your PC:

First time logging in: Go to Smile.Amazon.Com and put in your Amazon ID (usually your email address) and your Amazon password. The first time you sign in it will ask you what charity you want to designate. Your choice may be Holy Ground Shelter for Homeless (Riviera Beach).

After signing in, save that website as a favorite place or bookmark. Click on that site ( every time you sign on to Amazon. Nothing else changes (the website itself, your account, your payment method, your Amazon notifications). You will know you are on the correct site, because every time you sign in, you will see in the center of the screen, below the Search Box, “Supporting Holy Ground Shelter for Homeless.”

Encourage your friends and family to also sign up for Amazon Smile and see how much good you can do for others.

To “adopt” a bear, call Holy Ground’s office at 561-355-5040.

Requested Donations: 

Small bears – $5.00;  Medium bears – $10.00

Large bears – $15.00;  X-Large bears – $20.00


Items and Services

Donations of practical items or services for our clients are always welcome including donations of food, diapers, furniture and gently used baby and maternity clothing. See our “Wish List” for more ideas.

If you have items or services you think we might be able to use, please contact us (phone: 561-355-5040; or email).  We are committed to being good stewards of the time, talent and treasure offered to us and so we will let you know if, for some reason, we are not in a position to put your gift to good use.

We thank you in advance for your contributions which are so critical in providing a nurturing and positive environment for homeless pregnant and parenting teens.
