For individuals who have worked with a case manager, New Home Starter Kits are available for families and individuals transitioning from temporary to permanent shelter.  Kits include food, linens, housewares, and other necessities.

Why is a New Home Starter Kit Important?

For families transitioning from temporary to a permanent shelter, money is usually very tight because they have had to save for deposits and other moving expenses.  We want our families to have the best chance possible for long-term stability so our New Home Starter Kits help them with a leap forward.

  • Food – including non-perishable items such as canned vegetables and fruits, pasta, cereal, rice, beans, and soup
  • Kitchen Items – pots & pans, flatware, dishes, glasses, potholders, bakeware, cooking utensils, etc.

  • Misc. Items – Hangers, soap dish, toothbrush holder, kitchen sponge, laundry detergent, dishwasher detergent/ dish soap
