Many of our residents arrive with little or no personal belongings. With the generous support of our local community, House of Refuge program participants can begin to rebuild their lives and homes upon move-in. While living in the House of Refuge community, families can obtain essential items at no cost including food, clothing, furniture and other household goods from the House of Refuge Helping Hands House.

We pride ourselves in having an organized and clean space for our residents where they feel welcomed to pick-up necessities and “shop” for items. It is our goal for every resident who visits the Helping Hands House to have a positive experience where they are treated with dignity and respect.

All items that participants acquire are theirs to take when they leave the program.

Monday – Friday 9:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.; Saturdays 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

House of Refuge works with ReSupply, a veteran-owned and operated business that picks up gently used furniture, clothing, and household goods and delivers them to non-profit organizations that will put the items to good use. For a nominal fee, ReSupply staff will pick up items in their truck and haul them away and give you a receipt for your donation. ReSupply will take everything including building materials, tvs, mattresses – even items that House of Refuge cannot accept at our Helping Hands House Donation Center – and pass them on to non-profit organizations throughout the Valley who could use them.
