As of June 2013, we are focusing on the needs of one family at a time. We will engage groups, churches and individuals to help us move one family from a shelter to their own home. We will coordinate donations and delivery of furniture, household goods, small appliances, linens, kitchenware, pantry and other items to help get one family at a time settled in.
Additionally, we are working towards finding a permanant home so that we can serve as a conduit for bulk donations of furniture and household goods. Please consider supporting the Lowcountry Furniture Bank and helping us move to a permanant space
