Creating spaces for families to thrive in
SPECIAL PROJECT - AVALON COLLABORATION
Hickory Way is a new 70-unit housing complex being built and managed by Avalon Housing. HouseN2Home is collaborating with Avalon to furnish all 70 units!
HouseN2Home will use their expertise in selecting donated furniture to equitably furnish each unit.
SPONSOR A UNIT
Hickory Way units will be allocated to adults moving from a shelter into stable housing. For many, it is the first time in a long time, that they will have a bed to sleep in and a roof over their heads. Avalon Housing case managers work with their clients during residency.
HouseN2Home can't do a project like this alone! We are asking for families, groups, or organizations to "SPONSOR A UNIT". This includes making a plan with your team (to include color schemes and themes), collecting or purchasing new or used items, storing the items, and then engaging in MOVE-IN DAY by physically moving the items into the units and placing them as you envisioned. Please see below for a floor plan as well as a wish list.
Phase I (34 units) of the construction is expected to be completed in December. The units are unoccupied, so move-in and decorating can occur safely with your team during the COVID-19 pandemic.
While there will be no "REVEAL" for this project, our wish is that your team will learn about the challenges of homelessness in our community and connect with this issue in a deeply personal, meaningful way.
** Avalon Housing, via Kiwanis, will be providing the sofas, small kitchen tables and chairs. HouseN2Home will be providing new bed frames, mattresses and dressers.
There are elevators available for your use during move-in day.
Here is a helpful registry from target, with suggestions for new items.
