The Mission

Hope & Comfort’s mission is to provide essential hygiene products to support and improve the health, self-esteem, and hygiene education of school-aged children and young adults in need within Greater Boston.

The Vision

Hope & Comfort’s vision is that one day everyone living in the US will have access to essential hygiene products to feel clean, confident, and healthy.

The need

Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits do not cover hygiene products. This makes getting essential items a huge challenge. They are expensive and buying them shifts money away from other urgent needs.

At Hope & Comfort, we know how something as basic as a bar of soap can have a huge impact on how individuals feel about themselves. Because of this, we work tirelessly to bring these critical products to all who need them.

The Model

Hope & Comfort carries out our mission by working with a distribution network that includes youth-serving and community organizations. These organizations distribute the products to children and adults who currently go without. Hope & Comfort focuses its efforts on the Greater Boston area.
