About the Donation Center

The Welcome Home Donation Center is Homeward Bound’s facility where furniture and household goods are collected from the community and distributed to individuals and families who are moving out of homelessness and into housing. Our goal is for every client to move into a comfortably furnished home.

Most people who are homeless have very little or no belongings or furnishings, so when we move individuals and families into their home, they receive a house full of clean, gently used furniture donated by our community. Creating a home is key to Homeward Bound’s 92% housing retention rate.

The Welcome Home Donation Center is open Monday through Friday, 9AM to Noon. Drop-off bins are also available 24/7 for your convenience.

Welcome Home donation center provides a sense of home

They worked real hard to find me a place. I am so thankful. I now have an apartment, a door to come through into a big living room, a full-size kitchen, a full-size bedroom, and a full-size bathroom. I can take a shower when I want and I LOVE to cook.

My life is so good.
