One Bed at a Time!
The joy on their faces!!

It's like playing Santa every Monday,Tuesday and Wednesday!!

Home Makers of Hope accepts gently used furniture and then delivers it to families and individuals who could be sleeping on the floor! Families and individuals are sent to us already pre-screened by our community's social service and faith-based agencies so that we can try to meet their furniture and household needs. This is a completely volunteer group, requiring just a few hours each week! Those few hours totally can change the lives of so many people.

Each MONDAY,TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY from 9:00 to 1:00 (or later) volunteers gather at the east end of Gulf Eagle Supply warehouse in Ybor City for a variety of tasks: driving boxtrucks, sorting through household donations; loading and unloading furniture from boxtrucks; delivering and setting up furniture to families and individuals.

On SATURDAYS and some THURSDAYS from 8:30 AM to mid-afternoon, furniture donations are picked up from throughout the County and delivered to our warehouse.

Volunteers also help with gathering and entering records, seeking additional donations, visiting the families in advance to ascertain space and furniture needs, scheduling pick ups, etc. There is a role for everyone!
