Create a "Welcome Home Basket" for families graduating from shelter into apartments. Simply fill a laundry basket with NEW items from the list below and drop it off for our next family moving out! Or designate your donation to our "Welcome Home Basket Fund" - we have a partnership with The Goodness Project, a non-profit that allows us to purchase items for these baskets at 80% off retail value!
On a case-by-case basis, we may be able to accept select furniture to help families establish their new apartments. Please fill out the form below if you have any of the following items to donate.
Donating to our Security Deposit Assistance Fund allows your money to go directly to helping a family overcome a HUGE barrier to housing - coming up with money to cover the expense of a security deposit.
Family Promise is the only homeless shelter in Buffalo that offers this benefit to families if we have generous donors who will support the fund. We have found that families that can afford security deposits move out of shelter twice as fast as those who cannot.
If you would like to support, please designate your donation to our "Security Deposit Assistance Fund"
Help our families get started off on the right foot by collecting all the essentials they will need to move into their own apartment. Below is what you would need to fully furnish a family's new apartment - we ask groups to fulfill the entire list with used or new items and we will link you to a family moving out of shelter. We can provide the U-Haul on moving day!
