About A HOME OF OUR OWN HOWARD INC

Location:

PO BOX 51, SIMPSONVILLE, MD 21150, US

Mission Statement

A HOME OF OUR OWN HOWARD, INC., also known as HOME OF OUR OWN (HOOO), is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization whose mission is to provide furniture and household items at no cost to individuals and families transitioning from homelessness to permanent housing in Howard County, Maryland. Our vision for accomplishing this mission is to involve individuals, businesses, congregations, and other organizations in Howard County as donors, volunteers, and partners.

Description

When people transition from homelessness to affordable housing, they are often met with empty rooms and no resources to furnish them. HOOO accepts community donations of furniture, kitchen supplies, and household goods, and gives them to our clients for a fresh start. Everything is provided and delivered to them without cost.

​HOOO serves families, veterans, elderly, and individuals each year who need community support during crucial times in their lives. Many of our recipients are children. By turning their house into a home, we help empower adults to move forward towards self-sufficiency.
