Our Mission-

MAKE IT HOME's mission is to furnish homes of families and individuals transitioning out of crisis or homelessness with donated, gently used, repurposed furniture and household goods. Our vision is to end furniture poverty and bring hope to families, while being self-sustaining and protecting the environment.

What we do-

Families and individuals transitioning out of crisis or homelessness often do not have the items to make a house a home. That's where we come in, bringing them gently used household items to help ease the transition. With donated, repurposed furnishings and household goods, we are able to create sets of essential home items for families, foster youth, and individuals moving into permanent housing, helping them MAKE IT HOME.



What we've accomplished-

MAKE IT HOME has been operating since October of 2020. As of June 2021, we have already furnished households for 120 families! While doing so, we have also been able to divert over 140 tons from landfill. We are very proud of our success to date and have plans to increase these numbers month by month.



Get involved-

We are looking for volunteers to sort and organize, design and curate sets of home furnishings and work on small repair and refinishing projects. We also accept gently used furniture and household goods and monetary contributions.
