HOME IN A BOX

We provide basic household items for families transitioning from homelessness to a home or apartment.

Your donations of household items (listed below) will help formerly homeless families who are working to establish a better life for themselves.

Contact us at 402.489.3024 and we’ll coordinate with you to schedule volunteers to pick up the furniture items you would like to donate.

We also appreciate your tax-deductible cash donations to purchase items when donated supplies are low. Thank you for helping our families!
