Ongoing Donation Needs

Permanent Housing Needs

We often imagine the moment when an individual or family learns they will be moving from emergency shelter to permanent housing as a time of celebration. While a sigh of relief is often felt, what should a celebratory time can often be traumatic when all of a person’s belongings fit into a single trash bag. With no way to easily acquire basic necessities that are needed to cook, clean, and furnish a new apartment, moving into a new home with almost nothing can feel overwhelming and daunting.

You can alleviate the stress of starting a new home by donating a Welcome Home Kit. The items in these kits are essential to help ease the transition for a person or a family from homelessness into a home of their own. Creating Welcome Home Kits is a perfect project for a corporate group, a congregation, or a family.
