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 be a sponsor!

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), painting (if necessary), toiletries, cleaning supplies, household basic items, mattress encasements, possibly a new mattress, and any other specific items we need to purchase for the client.
