Home Warming Baskets for Newly Housed

Open Opportunity


For those who do not have a place to call their own, moving into a house or apartment is a major milestone. Many people move in with only their family and very few belongings. We are collecting "Home Warming Baskets," a laundry hamper filled with cleaning supplies ad basic items to help them get started in their new home. Your help will provide support and encouragement to those who need it most. A list of some ideas for the basket can be found below. Thank you for your efforts to end homelessness in our community! Please email Errin Woods errin@cafth.org for additional information.
