Welcome Home Baskets

After having no place to call your own for many months or years at a time, moving into a house or apartment is a major milestone. Many of the people we help to find housing arrive with few belongings aside from the clothes on their back. To help them settle into their new homes, we provide “Welcome Home Baskets” filled with essential items. By helping us to fill Welcome Home Baskets, you can give our neighbors another reason to celebrate the journey home.
