Donors like you have helped over 120,000 individuals create a home!

Over 1.6m pounds of furnishing redirected back to the community
For many of your neighbours, living in empty housing means that there is no place to connect, to share a meal, or to create memories together. And with an average cost of $8,000 to furnish a one-bedroom apartment with brand new home goods and furniture, how can women fleeing domestic violence, low-income families, the formerly homeless, and newcomers to Canada possibly create a safe and dignified home for themselves?
By making a gift today, more of your neighbours will be able to receive the furnishings they need to create a home.
Your gift of:
- $500 will furnish a families’ entire home
- $250 will provide the furniture needed for a child
- $100 will get a child off the floor with a new mattress
- $75 will provide a kitchen table for a family
- $25 will provide bedding and linens
Why we do it
We know how important it is to find safety in a place you can finally call home.
Martin’s story highlights the transformative power of furniture. And that’s with your help.
With more families being transitioned off the streets and shelters and into housing to keep our communities safe, we have been delivering both furniture and home hygiene & cleaning kits.
