Disasters strike - Tornados. Floods. Financial loss. Physical injury. Mental illness. Dementia.
Whether by the violent winds of a F-4 tornado, the traumas of combat, or the ravages of Alzheimer’s disease, the safety and familiarity of home – with its treasures and memories – can be stolen in a heartbeat
For more than 7 years, High Socks for Hope, Inc. has devoted its energy to passionately advocating for individuals devastated by natural disasters and homeless, disabled or destitute veterans.
High Socks For Hope assists many veterans who have lost their belongings due to a natural disaster. In August 2016, we began working in Baton Rouge to help families affected by the flooding. We provided several elderly veterans who had lost their furniture with a recliner. We are now working in Texas also and Florida would love to buy recliners for our veterans who have lost theirs in the storms. If you would like to help purchase a recliner please do so at the link below. It costs around $130.00 per chair.

High Socks for Hope’s veteran assistance program began in late 2014 with the Valor Grove project. The organization has worked closely with Tuscaloosa Veteran Affairs to fully furnish over 50 transitional units at Valor Grove. Valor Grove is a complex that provides a safe place for veterans to live while transitioning from military to civilian life.Often, when a veteran transitions out into the community, High Socks For Hope will assist them with furniture for their permanent home.
High Socks For Hope also works with the Homeless Veteran's Unit at the Tuscaloosa VA to help veterans who are not moving into Valor Grove but elsewhere in the community. When furnishing homes in the community, the organization provides new residents a new bed, bedding, a basic kitchen box, a bathroom, a food box and other furniture items when funding is available.
