Need help making a home?

You may have put together a security deposit and first month’s rent for an apartment in Dane County, and that wasn’t easy. Maybe now you find yourself and family in empty rooms. If you can’t afford to buy some basic furniture, we can help.

We operate local thrift stores in part to be able to provide basic-needs items, including furniture, free to people experiencing hard times — especially to people transitioning from homelessness into housing. Furniture is provided from our thrift store when you apply for a voucher.

Eligibility

  • You may be eligible for a furniture voucher if you reside in Dane County and have not received a furniture voucher in the last five years.
  • Furnishings we may be able to supply include a sofa, a living-room chair, a card table & chair set, plastic crates, and inflatable beds.
  • You may also be eligible to receive dishes, glassware, utensils, pots, pans, bedding and linens.
    • These items may be made available if you haven’t received these items from us within the last year.
    • Our members can discuss needs for these items with you.
  • If you have an infant or toddler in the household who lacks a proper crib, we can offer a new portable crib for the child.
