No one should face a Cleveland Ohio winter without a warm hat and gloves!

Welcome to Hats and Gloves for the Homeless!!

Our goal is to help provide each Cleveland Homeless Stand Down guest with a new hat and pair of gloves at each year's event.

What is this all about?

2020 Homeless Stand Down: Cleveland OH


The next annual Homeless Stand Down in Cleveland will be held on January 11, 2020 at the Cleveland Public Auditorium.  The Homeless Stand Down (HSD) is a one-day event providing access to resources for individuals and families facing poverty and homelessness. The Homeless Stand Down provides homeless individuals, families, and veterans a day of respite from the elements, renewal of the human spirit, and reconnection to needed services that assist in the totality of human wellness and sustainability.  An estimated 1,500 guests enjoy access to social service providers, haircuts, medical screenings, live entertainment, professional portraits, breakfast and lunch, and free winter clothing, personal care kits, bus passes and much more. 

Our Purpose and Mission:


Each year at Cleveland's Homeless Stand Down the supply of hats and gloves runs out before each guest has obtained one of each.  Let's make sure no one leaves the event in the dead cold of Cleveland's winter without a hat and gloves.

Please Donate!


Our first priority for 2020 is for donations for men's gloves, as not every guest at the 2019 event received a pair.  Any monetary donations will be spent 100% toward the purchase of gloves.  Please contact Lynn Hubach for all donations.
