Pathfinders is seeking support from community members to assemble Welcome Home Kits for youth transitioning from homelessness and housing instability into their own apartment for the first time. Moving-in is an exciting step for our young people. However, without everyday items, simple tasks such as taking a shower or cooking a meal remain a luxury. These kits equip our youth with the basic essentials we all need to function comfortably and safely in our homes. Kits may include items such as:

  • Laundry basket or bag
  • 1-2 Bath towels
  • 1-2 Wash Cloths
  • Shower curtain with liner and hooks
  • Kitchen towels
  • Potholders
  • Kitchen utensils
  • Flatware Set
  • Dinnerware Set
  • Drinking glasses

Other helpful options include pots and pans/cookware or bedding/sheets/a new pillow. Use your discretion for the kits in regards to what items you are personally able to purchase and include, even if it does not include the entire list above that our Housing team has recommended.

This volunteer project is to be completed from the safety of your own home. Kits can be dropped off between M-F 11am-5pm. Please wear a mask upon entering our front lobby and email Dominique Lee dlee@pathfindersmke.org when you plan to drop off items so we can acknowledge your donation. If you would like a contact-free drop off, please call the front desk upon arrival.

Please respond to this post to get involved, and we will reach out via email to coordinate!
