HDR Provides $5,000 of Support to Faces of Hope 

Access to basic hygiene supplies like soap, toothpaste, menstrual products, and deodorant helps survivors feel clean and cared for during a challenging time, promoting both physical and mental health. These items can also restore a sense of normalcy and self-worth, empowering survivors to take the first steps toward rebuilding their lives. In emergency situations, such as when fleeing abusive environments, having immediate access to hygiene products can significantly alleviate stress, especially for those with children, and improve the quality of life of those in crisis.
