- Little Red Door Application Checklist
Please note, to simplify the application process, we will mail the remaining documents needed once the Little Red Door application is received. Also, the Horseshoes of Hope application states they need it turned in by May 15. It is fine to wait and turn it in along with your Little Red Door application by June 14 instead of May 15. Please send all applications directly to Little Red Door; you do not need to send the application in to Horseshoes of Hope.
