Hopefull Handbags, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit and Global Charity organization. All contributions are tax deductible.
Hopefull Handbags, Inc is a community driven nonprofit Faith Based organization dedicated to raising awareness for domestic violence, and aiding in the recovery of domestic violence survivors by offering hope, support, and help. Our mission is driven primarily by local advocates. Our dedicated local advocates work hand in hand with their community domestic violence shelters and other organizations that assist in women getting back on their feet again due to detrimental situations. Local advocates establish drop off locations, work with local businesses, collect necessities, and fill donated handbags as well as distribute them to local organizations.
We also have events catered to the women and children to nurture a healthy Self Perception and Confidence. Domestic Violence also adversely effects the children too and it is our hope that with these donations, domestic violence survivors feel supported, full of hope, and have the necessities they need to facilitate a fresh start.
If you would like to donate to Hopefull Handbags, Inc, please contact your local advocate for a list of drop off centers in your area. If you wish to make a monetary donation for the purchase of necessities by our organization, click here. All donations are tax deductible.
