Rising Creek Family Connection was launched 1/1/11 and is named in memory of Cecil and Pat Huxford for their generosity in the community when we were growing up.  My sister joined me in establishing our Housewares for Home program and it has been a journey of love as we serve families who are starting over after being sheltered, most commonly to escape domestic violence.


Our Board is committed to seeking opportunities through Richmond area agencies to identify clients in need and to customizing our housewares package to meet their needs.


We have found that there are so many generous individuals and organizations looking for ways to channel their community outreach giving to make a direct impact where it is needed, and we feel our Housewares for Home program meets their desire to make a difference in the lives of the citizens of our community.

We would be grateful for your investment in our work.  A tax deductible gift of $25, $50 or more will be used for direct service to our clients as they set up a new safe, secure home
