Approximately 3 years ago, through our work with Senior Services, we were introduced to Home Start Foundation. The relationship started slowly first with referrals and bringing donations from our clients. Over time we learned more about the organization and now we work with Home Start Foundation quite often.
We believe that a family should feel safe and comfortable in their home. HomeStart Foundation believes “The home is the bedrock for individual growth, security, love and well being. But because of the circumstances of life, or financial limitations, some people are unable to put together a comfortable home environment.” In many ways their mission statement and ours align and we love working with them and enjoy even more when a family can make a house a home.
HomeStart Foundation is a non-profit Christian humanitarian organization helping people re-establish a home. Working in partnership with over 70 member agencies, we give donated home furnishings to people in need.
HomeStart Foundation coordinates needs with generosity. They pick up furniture, store it in their warehouse, and then deliver the furnishings and household effects to those with specific needs to enable them to establish a comfortable home environment. They provide an opportunity for the people of Greater Vancouver to achieve the double objectives of generosity and stewardship (reduce, reuse and recycle), by making available surplus household effects, in good condition, to those in need. $260.00 furnishes a home.
