Create "Welcome Home Baskets" for families graduating from shelter into new apartments.  Simply fill a laundry basket with the following items and drop it off for our next family moving out!  New or used items are fine. 

  • laundry basket (to fill with rest of items)
  • small broom and dust pan
  • plates, bowls and cups for 4
  • set of flatware
  • pot and pan
  • cooking utensils
  • shower curtain and rings
  • bath mat
  • 4 bath towels

**Due to current construction at our site and lack of storage space, we are asking anyone who assembles a Welcome Home Basket to hold onto it until we have a family departing shelter for a new apartment.  Please contact us to let us know you have one ready!

Security Deposit Assistance Fund


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 go to the DONATE button on our homepage.
