But what now brings us the most joy are the little things. Things such as supplies to clean, paper towels to wipe up spills, and other household items. While small, these represent that we NOW have a new place to call home!"

Most of the time when someone moves to a permanent home in our Homeless to Housing program they have very few of the basic items needed to set up their home. That’s where you come in by donating or hosting a donation drive for Welcome Baskets.
Our standard kit is a laundry basket with plates, cups, bowls, cutlery, kitchen towels, cooking equipment, cleaning supplies, shower curtain/rings, and a few hygiene items.
Ways to Donate
- If you have gently used or new items to donate that’s great! Bring them by our office anytime between 8-5, Monday through Friday. If possible, let us know before you come. If you have a lot of stuff we may be able to arrange a pickup—just contact us and we will try to work something out.
- You can also purchase items from our Amazon wish list and have them delivered to our office.
- Or, you can make a cash donation for our social workers to go shop. In the dedication line please write “welcome basket.”
- Host a drive: contact us for our Donation Drive Coordinator packet.
