HOW WE HELP

We help those emerging from homelessness to furnish their new homes

Local service organizations and government agencies who help people experiencing housing insecurity refers clients to AFS. We then work directly with the clients to determine their needs and coordinate getting items to them. We provide as many household items and furniture as possible so they have all they need to create a home that allows them to truly have a fresh start.
