House N2 Home

Creating homes where people can thrive



Want to give back to your community?
Be a integral part of changing someone's life, from hands-on support to financial support, see how you or your group can support a move!

Because House N2 Home uses generous donations of furniture and household items from the community, the financial obligation for a move is typically low. 


However, there are some expenses. We estimate that $500 covers all the costs associated with a "typical" client move. This includes a pro-rated expense for van (gas, maintenance and insurance), hourly rate for "heavy lifters", painting (if necessary), cleaning supplies, household basic items, mattress encasements, shower liner, and any other specific items we need to purchase for the client.

Are you interested in volunteering as a group? What we really need is for groups to do drives for items that we would otherwise need to purchase.

We have specific lists, but examples are:

Cleaning items (in a 10-12 quart mop pail):

  • All purpose cleaner

  • Cleaning rag (repurposed cotton towels or tee shirts)

  • Abrasive cleaner (Comet / Bon Ami)

  • Dish cloths and sponges

  • Liquid dish soap

  • Toilet bowl brush & container

Household items (in square laundry basket)

  • Paper towels 

  • Toilet paper 

  • Kleenex - 2

  • Laundry pods (5-7 pods or 8-10oz bottle of liquid detergent)

  • Aluminum foil

  • Kitchen trash bags (13 gallon)

  • Bathroom trash bags (small)

  • 2 Liquid hand soap in dispensers (bathroom and kitchen) 

  • Toilet Plunger

  • 10 Hangers

  • Toothbrush

  • Toothpaste

  • Floss

  • NEW Mattress encasements and pillow protectors are used for every move. 

  • Another useful drive is to ask for specific items, for example:

    • Small kitchen appliance drive: toasters, blenders, mixers, microwaves, crockpots, panini makers.

    • Bathroom drive: new towels, bath mats, over door hangers, shower curtains, shower liners, shower curtain rings, soap dispenser, small garbage cans.

    • Bedroom drive: comforter, sheet sets, pillow protectors, mattress encasements, small rugs, small bedside tables.

  • You get the picture!

We have also had groups paint furniture.
