How Your Donations are Used

We primarily serve families and individuals that are transitioning into smaller apartments. In order to serve them well, we prioritize items that are space-efficient and desirable for their living spaces. For their sake, we do not accept anything with rips, stains, discoloration, pet-hair, structural damage, or in need of repair. We prioritize items such as:

  • Dressers
  • Coffee tables
  • Couches and loveseats
  • Living room chairs
  • Small Kitchen tables and chairs
  • Small kitchen appliances and dishware
  • End tables
  • Like-new Queen, Double, and Twin mattresses
  • Nightstands
  • Small bookshelves
  • Lamps
  • Clothing

Your donations help provide meals for people in need, clothing for men and families in our long-term programs, household items for people struggling to make ends meet, vehicles for program graduates, and more.

All this adds up to provide amazing life change for people in need.
