Our Mission:

Creating community.

Houses into Homes provides beds, furniture, and household items for families and individuals who are exiting homelessness, domestic violence, and other crisis situations, using donated and gently used items.

We believe that our community is strengthened when people know that others in the community genuinely care for their well-being.


Houses into Homes has provided beds, furniture, and household items to 702 community members.

Our Mission

Our mission is to help people feel the comfort of home, no matter their circumstances, and, critically to always do so in a way that honors their experience and engages with them in dignity.


Our Impact

Since we first met in early January 2018 to discuss the possibility of such an effort, we have served hundreds of adults and children. For many of those children, these are the first time they have had their own beds to sleep on, the first couches they have had as theirs, the first dinner tables they have had in their home, and the first art that has hung off their walls. These deliveries have involved hundreds of beds (mattresses and boxsprings) and around dozens of couches, as well as dozens of sheet sets, towels, bath mats, and more (e.g., entertainment centers, dinner tables, chairs, art). An additional benefit is that much of this furniture has also been kept out of the landfill.
