Holiday Joy at Hutton House

The holiday season is a time of joy and celebration. As a shelter, Hutton House plays a crucial role in ensuring that the holiday season becomes a source of solace rather than added stress. Clients and staff members are invited to join the festivities and bring along friends and family. Hutton House is open all through the holiday celebrations, providing youth with a safe place to stay.

Hutton House is transformed into a winter wonderland, with decorations throughout the space creating excitement among the youth. For holiday meals, the staff collects input to create a shopping list, and preparation begins a few days beforehand. This year’s menu promises to be a delight, featuring comfort food classics like mac and cheese, casseroles, turkey, and ham.

To make the holiday season even more special, Hutton House encourages the youth to create a wish list. Hutton House relies on the community for monetary and gift donations to provide gifts. Youth are given gifts from their list, including a goodie bag filled with essentials and gift cards.

Even during times of crisis, Hutton House remains a beacon of stability and joy for the youth in its care. Recognizing that the holidays can be a challenging time for many, the staff goes the extra mile to provide youth with a sense of normalcy. All celebrations are made with inclusivity in mind, embracing diverse traditions and fostering a sense of togetherness.
