household necessities

When a family moves from a situation such as domestic violence, homelessness or successful completion of drug and alcohol addiction treatment into a safe, new home, often they have little of what they need to bring with them. Share A Dream helps a woman and her family get started in their new home by providing some basic necessities.

“Thank you for helping me to take care of my family. You helped us to make a house our home! Thank you so much for your generosity and kindness.”
Nicole, recipient

Our club’s members donate kitchenware such as dishes, pots and pans, utensils and household items such as cleaning agents, paper goods, and trash bags. We assemble them in a laundry basket, bucket and box and add a gift card to fill in the gap for additional items the family may need. Usborne children’s books are also included as an extension of our support for literacy. If you are downsizing and want to make a donation of any of these items, contact us by clicking the Contact button at the top of this page. The number of families who have applied for this program has increased substantially.

This one-time award cannot be given at the same time as our other awards. Candidates for this service are referred by our community and social service agency partners. Click the button below to reach a link to contact one of them.
