Imagine moving into a new home with only the items you can carry with you in a single trip. You have no dishes and utensils. No shower curtain and no trash can. No bed to sleep on at night.

Each year, partners of The Way Home move thousands of individuals into permanent housing, yet there are basic needs that often go unmet due to funding constraints. To fill this gap, the Coalition for the Homeless created the Welcome Home Fund to turn houses into homes for those exiting homelessness.

The Welcome Home Fund provides Welcome Baskets full of home goods, purchases furniture, and pays for things like application fees that other funding sources don’t cover.

There are several ways to support the Welcome Home Fund! You can make your gift online by clicking here, set up a payroll deduction, or start an in-kind drive at work or with your civic organization! Email Renee Cavazos at for more information.
