You must come to see for yourself the variety and quality of these items.

All proceeds will go to support Filling Homes programs for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities through the Adaptive Equipment and Personal Assistance Fund which aids in providing the vital mobility assistance devices used by the residents of the Filling Home.. Over the years, the generosity of our supporters has raised more than $80,000.00, which has helped the residents stay active and mobile.

The Women’s Guild is a service auxiliary supporting the ministry of Filling Home. There are close to 300 members belonging to the Guild, coming from northwestern Ohio and as far away as Delaware, Ohio. Since 1964 the Guild members have generously volunteered their assistance to enhance the lives of the children and adults with developmental disabilities who have received services from the Filling Home.
