HOUSING FORWARD HOUSE TO HOME KITS

Thank you for your generosity in supporting this project!

Housing Forward's donation policy requests that all soft items (bedding, towels, rugs, etc.) be purchased new. For other items, we can accept gently used, but donating new items helps convey the message of new belongings and that "this is home."

You'll see a request for televisions on the list. Televisions are important "House to Home" items because they help our clients transition back to living alone in an apartment, often after living in the PADS Shelter. Watching television is one way clients can re-establish their connections to the community.
