HomeStart Foundation

Our Mission

The goal of HomeStart Foundation is to redistribute safe, clean, functional furniture in a professional, dignified manner, from those who want to share to those who are truly in need.


We are a nonprofit Christian humanitarian organization. We receive donated usable furniture - nearly any furniture a person or family needs to set up a home. Then we distribute those donated items to families and individuals who are doing just that: re-establishing a household after a period of homelessness. HomeStart Foundation provides these basic items, free of charge, to people who have been homeless, with the goal of helping them achieve self-sufficiency, self-esteem, and long-term stability.
