Hesed House of Aurora created an endowment fund in 1994 to provide a perpetual source of income for its future charitable needs.
Hesed House exists as a hub for services for homeless individuals and families.
Ministries include the Aurora Area Interfaith Food Pantry, Aurora Soup Kitchen and Public Action to Deliver Shelter (PADS).
PADS has two goals: to meet homeless people’s basic needs (food, shelter and clothing) and to end homelessness one person—one family—at a time.
Hesed House, which originated in 1981, is located on South River Street in Aurora, the former site of the Aurora municipal incinerator.
The word “Hesed” is from biblical Hebrew and describes God’s unconditional and everlasting love.
