YOUR DONATED ITEMS MAKE A DIFFERENCE

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 Donation Center.

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 Donation Center 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.
