dsc_0347Stock an Apartment

By early 2017, 12 newly constructed apartments will be completed taking the total number of homeless families we can serve up to 30. Each time a new family moves in, the apartment must be stocked with essential items. The list below outlines the essentials needed for each apartment.

Donate all the items needed for one room or outfit an entire apartment! Great opportunity for a group!

When families graduate from our program, they take all these items with them to their new home. This makes “stocking our shelves” a recurring need!

Donations are accepted on TUES, WED, and THURS from 9 am & 3:00 pm at the Community Center located at 3402 Fox Street, Duluth Ga 30096.

    Connectivity Wireless Solutions helps us swing into Spring!

    Our Spring grounds spruce up just got a big boost from new Rainbow Village partner Connectivity Wireless Solutions!
