In my life change is scary but exciting. It usually means a new beginning….meeting new people, doing something I’ve never done before, stepping outside my zone. Maybe a new adventure or trying to understand another point of view very different from mine.
Most of our participants are facing change not because they are searching for an adventure but because things have simply fallen apart and are beginning to come together again. Most haven’t had the opportunity to choose anything in a long time….not the clothes they wear, the food they eat, the places they sleep or even where they sit to rest. When they walk in our doors they are often afraid, overwhelmed and cautious.
(Imagine shopping for furnishings for your whole house at one time! I would be overwhelmed too!)
Our hope is that we can welcome these folks in a way that helps them though this period of putting their lives back together by offering friendly faces, kind words and choices, so that they can fill their new homes with things they can call “theirs” and feel that, as Marilyn Monroe said, “Sometimes things fall apart so that better things can fall together.”
Join us in making “better things fall together” by donating your gently used household furnishings to
help someone begin again.
