We are delighted that you are considering volunteering with House N2 Home (HN2H)!
We aspire to create a welcoming environment for our volunteers, our referring agencies, and the people
We are all from different cultures and backgrounds. And, we would argue that together these diverse
experiences greatly contribute to the magic of what we do. Above all, we are here to serve, to take
donated (and occasionally purchased furniture and household goods to help furnish homes for people
moving out of homelessness. Our aim is to create homes where individuals and families can thrive,
striving as much as possible to select furnishings that reect our client’s wishes, rather than our own.
That makes our interview and selection process, and our listening skills, critically important. Many of our
clients have not had a chance to express our own dreams and desires; some may feel uncertain or
overwhelmed. All of our focus, at every step, should be aimed at helping to restore dignity and choice to
our fellow humankind who have lived without a home.
Our greatest compliment comes when our clients tell us, “You heard me!”
We look forward to seeing you and hope that you will find HN2H to be a warm, welcoming and
meaningful volunteer experience.
