Resettlement Home Essentials

We welcome in-kind donations of furniture and household items to support our mission of creating comfortable and welcoming homes for refugees.

Welcome Kits

We believe in extending a warm and heartfelt welcome to refugees as they embark on their journey to rebuild their lives in the DC Metro area. Our Welcome Kit Donation Option empowers you to make a meaningful impact and personally shop for a refugee.

  • These pre-made kits contain essential items that ease their transition into new homes.
  • Share this unique activity with children, family, or friends.
  • Choose specific items to positively impact newly arrived refugee families in the DMV.
  • By participating together, you show refugees that our community cares and welcomes them.

We’re committed to making every dollar count. Unless otherwise specified, each item in a ‘Welcome Kit’ can be purchased at your local dollar store. This approach ensures that we maximize the use of resources and direct your generosity where it’s needed most – directly to those we serve.
