Provide A Van For Nan

Defenders for Hope are embarking on a mission to refurbish vans and gift them to homeless women over 60, ensuring they have a comfortable and safe place to call home.

How You Can Help



Your financial contribution, no matter the size, will make a significant impact on our ability to refurbish and provide vans to homeless women over 60.

Spread the Word:

Share our mission with your friends, family, and colleagues. By raising awareness, you help us reach more people interested in supporting our Nans.


If you have skills in vehicle maintenance, interior design, or fundraising, we would love to have you join our team of dedicated volunteers.

Why are we doing this?

As you may know, homelessness among older women is a pressing issue that often goes unnoticed. These women have faced a lifetime of challenges, and finding themselves without a safe place to live in their later years is a situation that no one should have to endure.

That’s why Sharol and her team are committed to making a difference.

With your support, we can provide these vulnerable women with more than just a van; we can offer them a lifeline.

Imagine the relief and comfort they will feel knowing they have a secure and private space to rest, stay warm, and regain a sense of dignity.

How will your donation be used?

Your contribution to “A Van for Nan” will go directly towards the refurbishment of vans, ensuring they are equipped with all the necessary amenities to provide comfort and safety to their new occupants.

Your generosity will also enable us to cover ongoing maintenance costs and provide support services to help these women transition into their new living arrangements.
