MISSION

Vision

We believe as Confucius stated that “the strength of a nation derives from the integrity of the home” and that a home full of hope, dignity and love is the first step in homeless prevention. We envision a society where the excess of businesses and individuals are shared through a community experience with those in need of “home”. We envision a world where furniture and appliances are never sent to landfills but always given a second life. We believe that homelessness can only be eradicated through the active participation by all community stakeholders when focusing on prevention. The largest sector falling into homelessness are virtually invisible to society. They are the young people who survived the foster care system only to exit the system having to fend for themselves. To this end, we vow to work relentlessly toward the accomplishment of our mission:

Mission

A Sense of Home strives to prevent homelessness by creating first-ever homes for youth aging out of foster care with donated furniture and home goods. 30% of those struggling with homelessness are former foster youth. The homeless crisis can only end through prevention.
