Provides donated furniture and basic necessities to individuals and families leaving homelessness.
Moving can be expensive and stressful for anyone, but especially for those who have recently experienced homelessness. The Sharehouse provides furniture, linens, dishes and other household items that can help turn a house into a home.
The Sharehouse provides resources to people who have experienced homelessness that will help them establish and maintain a safe and stable home. In 2012, The Sharehouse helped more than 2,600 people establish 1,200 new households in King County.
This program also provides the community with a meaningful alternative to throwing away still useful household furniture and goods. On average, The Sharehouse keeps more than 22,000 items a year out of area landfills.
