Need: household items for youth moving into their first apartment

We serve youth ages 16-24 who are in a credit recovery/pre-appreticeship program. Students work 29 hours per week in the class room earning credits towards their diploma or GED and work and-on building a single family home. Many work on life skills of getting their first apartment and are in need of household items to get started. Please considering donating new or clean gently used items to our nonprofit program.

The Reset Program is a volunteer program in the jail that assists inmates with resources and services within the community. This program is for anyone willing to commit to a positive RESET in their life. The RESET social worker will make referrals, create case plans and work to see that services are set up prior to your release date. RESET has regular communication with you after release for a short period of time to help keep you on a successful track.

Their donation needs are:

  • Women: all sizes leggings, sweatpants, t-shirts, sweatshirts
  • Men: L - 4x sweatpants, t-shirts, sweatshirts
  • Adult shoes - all sizes
  • Smaller sized throws/blankets
