Move-In Kits are made available to Veterans who are transitioning from homelessness to permanent housing. The majority of veterans do not have the resources to purchase the essentials when they first move in to their new home.

The purpose of the kits is to help Veterans re-establish basic living skills. The kits enable the recipient to prepare a simple meal and thus encouraging healthier eating habits. A setting for two promotes socialization skills and ads to a more homelike environment. The cleaning supplies assist the recipient in maintaining a clean house thus promoting a healthier living environment. The HUD-VASH program (a partner of the Government HUD Housing Agency), provides permanent housing vouchers to eligible homeless veterans and veterans with families. HUD-VASH subsidizes up to 70% of rent for eligible veterans, based on income. Donations of items listed, monetary or other household items are needed to meet our monthly goals. We currently provide baskets to 5 Veterans per month however the actual need far exceeds what we are able to provide. There are at least 50 Veterans per month moving into their new place. The Move-In Kits consist of a laundry basket filled with the basic essentials needed for 2 people. Items needed: Laundry baskets, frying pans, sauce pan, cooking utensils, cleaning supplies (dishwashing and laundry soaps, kitchen/bathroom cleansers, sponges, mop & broom, dust pan), place setting and silverware (plates, bowls, coffee cups, drinking glasses, eating utensils,) kitchen towels, pot holders, paper towels, food prep utensils (veggie peelers, knives, serving spoons, cheese grater, colander, cutting board w/knife, can opener, tongs) ALL DONATIONS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE.
