What we do

We collect basic furniture and household items to provide to those transitioning from homelessness into their own homes.

You can help us accomplish our mission by donating money and volunteering your time and talents.

We receive donations of basic furniture and household items, rescuing them from being sent to the landfill. Then we deliver the beds, dressers, kitchenware, etc. to our clients according to their needs, at no cost, to help turn a house into a home.

Our Clients2021-10-15T02:58:48+00:00

We receive client referrals from the area homeless and women’s shelters (See Our Partners page for more infomation). Our clients have worked very hard to overcome homelessness and are moving into their own housing.
