Nora’s Gift Foundation strives to build lasting bonds with the community and elicit financial support, in-kind donations, and volunteers for Nora’s Home. Thanks to the generosity and support of the local community in Houston, Nora’s Home will be able to provide a comfortable haven to help our guests through difficult times. Our services have been and will continue to be funded by generous donations from individuals, civic groups (including many veterans groups and church congregations), and hospital partners. Nora’s Home also benefits from the invaluable support of corporate and private foundations.
