There are many opportunities to get involved with Rachel's House, including creating a Welcome Home Basket for our new residents (see below). For other ways to get involved see our volunteer page. Thank you!


 I had very low expectations for my life after prison. In many ways, I thought that my life had ended. Instead of an end, I found a new beginning at Rachel’s House.

Help a New resident feel welcome!

Could you, or a group of friends put together a Welcome Home Basket for a new Rachel's House resident? Here are some items you can include in a laundry basket:

  • Personal care items such as: shampoo, conditioner, body wash, deodorant, toothpaste/toothbrush, feminine hygiene products,  leave in conditioner, hair brush/hair pick, hair oil, loofah

  • New 'Life Recovery' bible

  • Devotional book

  • Journal and pens

  • Letter writing items such as envelopes, cards, and stamps

  • Towels

  • Home gifts e.g blanket, robe, slippers, photo frame

  • Hair dryer/flat iron

Contact to arrange the drop-off time and location. Thank you!
