Thank you for considering donating your gently used furniture and housewares.

Please view our before and after gallery. As you can see by utilizing ONLY high quality donated furniture, the inspired “home” — affords the youth dignity, self- worth and the foundation from which they can build a healthy life.

  • At A Sense of Home – we believe that when a youth has overcome the odds and beat these statistics that they should be celebrated and should have the opportunity to connect with a loving community who can open up opportunity that will empower them to flourish. ASOH believes the best opportunity to offer this is at the time of a youth setting up their first ever home. This core belief is based on scientific evidence that a well organized serene home  environment significantly improves its inhabitant’s ability to study well, perform well at work and build a healthy life. We believe in eradicating a layer of poverty from which former foster youth can never climb out from under — by simply sharing what others do not need. We also believe in providing the absolute best after a life of trauma and disruption can inspire a former foster youth to be as successful as their new environment and become the best versions of themselves.
