Thank you, Donors! We Exceeded our 2016-2017 Annual Appeal Goal!

Our 2016-2017 Annual Appeal bid ended on June 30th and we exceeded our goal! Thanks to all of you who gave. Our 2017-2018 Annual Appeal is now underway. Did you know? Hill House's program fees fund about two-thirds of our operating budget and we rely on the generosity of donors to fund the remaining 30% each year. Support from the community helps us compensate our dedicated staff and instructors, provide program scholarships, serve monthly meals to neighborhood seniors, and offer free events and activities.
