We have been able to raise money by selling appliances and home furnishings on Market Place and Craigslist. We have also used some of the better quality pieces in the home if they fit our needs. We are always in need of GENTLY USED or LIKE NEW recliners, ceiling fans, washers and dryers that work, wooden bookshelves (no particle board), wooden dressers (no particle board), grill for outdoor patio, outdoor picnic table and furniture, home maintenance supplies (lawn dump cart that can be pulled by a lawnmower). We can offer you a letter for tax purposes to document your donation. Please contact us if you have anything that you would like to donate!
If you have something we need or if you would like to purchase something in our name, we would gladly accept it. We want our persons supported to feel like they have a clean, healthy place to live. We want everyone to feel comfortable and welcome with the typical home furnishings that everyone values inside and out. Please follow this link or the one below to see our WISH LIST on Amazon.
We are doing so much with volunteer effort. To start up this organization, get the house licensed and be ready to hire employees and support individuals in Blount County we could really use financial support. Our goals right now are to fund the licensing and pay for the start up IT services and equipment we will need to open our nonprofit on the right foot. If you don't start out with the right programs it is difficult if not impossible to switch over once the business is going. Help us start off right.

Everyone is affected by homelessness in their community and surrounding communities. The collective good that comes from people finding a place to live and thrive is felt by all on an economic as well as spiritual level. Ask yourself how you feel when you drive by shelters or homeless camps. They're not so uplifting. You may even avoid these areas like the plague. There is nothing more damaging than not having the three keys to survival Food, Water, and Shelter. With the lack of any of those three needs comes choices made from desperation and lack. The side effects are horrendous and we see them every day in the news and on our streets. There is more of this lack than you know. Please understand that we know we can't fix everything but working towards solutions is the only thing that will get us closer to healing as a society. Don't just shake your head and feel sorry for the situation. ANY AMOUNT of donation will help us make a difference.
