Karilyn Rivera, housing case manager for Focus, which assists homeless families, chooses items for her clients to give their children as gifts.
The holidays can be just one more problem for families who have fallen on hard times.
Hope for All Seasons brings some joy to those families throughout the region by providing toys and other gifts for children. Funded mainly by the Justice Resource Institute (JRI), the seasonal effort is also supported by community partners so parents don’t have to decide between paying rent and giving presents to their children.
