We are proud to announce that in June 2019 we were able to help 197 people move out of homelessness and into their newly furnished homes.
We furnished 128 homes with couches, chairs, dressers, dining sets, pot and pans, art, and so much more and worked with 143 adults and 54 children to help set them up in their new space.
It is with the kindness and generosity of our community that we are able to do the work that we do and supply the much needed items to our clients. Thank you, Edmonton, for thinking of us when donating your furniture and home goods.
With the summer months approaching, we tend to notice donations starting to dwindle. We would like to take this opportunity to ask that you, our amazing supporters, continue to talk to your friends, coworkers, strangers and family members about Find and encourage them to support those transitioning out of homelessness in Edmonton.
The items of greatest need for Housing First participants are the bigger items such as chairs, couches, love seats, dressers, dining sets, coffee tables and end tables. We also like to provide as many smaller home good items such as pots and pans, cutlery, microwaves, plates and bowls, kitchen utensils and other smaller items that help make a house a home.
If you are able to donate, we are happy to accept donations at the back door of the Find Retail + Donation Centre located at 5120 122 Street during regular business hours, and we also offer a free pick up service for large items. You can schedule a pick up by calling our team at 780 998 1717 or by using our online donation form.
Thank you to all of you who work with our teams, support our clients, donate to Find and shop at the retail locations. Together, we can end homelessness in Edmonton!
