Windows of Hope located to the right of the elevator of the 9th floor is easy to see. The entry doors are wide open during operating hours on Mondays – Fridays from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. As soon as we approached we were warmly greeted by Linda, the very  kind manager and Marilyn, a very kind volunteer.

Windows of Hope products include: wigs, hats, scarves, jewelry, journals, specialty creams, lotions, books, CDs, videotapes etc. The employees and volunteers are very helpful, kind, supportive and sensitive.
