We are a group of volunteers responding to people who need help. Many of our clients have come out of some form of homelessness and have nothing for their apartment once they move into housing. These families who are usually single Moms are usually facing poverty. They have escaped from domestic abuse or struggled with drugs or have been left alone to raise their kids. It breaks our hearts to see children sleeping on bare floors. We are able to help find furniture and basic needs but the hardest thing is to provide beds due to the challenges of used beds and bed bugs. We are passionate about reaching out to those in need. We want to give them things to help them get secure but we also want to help them help themselves. We are aware of many resources in our community and are much like social workers who are just caring for people.
