For some moving into an apartment can seem like an exciting experience, but imagine what it would be like if you moved into an apartment after being homeless.

We are always looking for volunteers and community organizers to coordinate a Welcome Home basket drive and put together the welcome baskets each month to ensure we have one for every veteran household upon move in to their new home!

Sometimes finally having a place to call your own can feel like success, but it can also be very lonely and very empty for some of our veteran families. Sometimes, greeting our veteran families with a welcome basket upon moving into their new home may help alleviate any new home anxiety and meet their most immediate needs

Some essentials are needed to turn a house into a home. The “welcome home” baskets double as laundry baskets and include:

  • Plates, cups, bowls
  • Toilet brush
  • Laundry basket
  • Laundry detergent
  • Basic cleaning supplies
  • Towels
  • Silverware
  • Bowls
  • Shower curtain
  • Bath mat
  • Toilet paper
  • Shampoo & conditioner
  • Soap
