Helping people create a place called home

Shelter to Home

We’re providing furniture and household items to people on the North Shore transitioning from homelessness to independent living.

We believe that acts of compassion can change lives.

Our mission is to provide furniture and household items, at no cost, to people living on the North Shore, who are either transitioning from homelessness to independent living, or who are living on extremely limited incomes.  We gratefully accept furniture donations (and financial contributions) from residents of North Vancouver and West Vancouver.  We coordinate with local agencies to help our clients establish a comfortable home.


November 2020 Update

Shelter to Home continues to seek a new home for our storage. (Read more about our situation and needs here.) Meanwhile, we are in temporary housing and able to help clients again. Please visit our COVID protocols page to learn how to donate safely and help us continue to help others.

Shelter to Home is supported by the generous residents of the North Shore through donations of furniture and household goods, and by the financial support of individuals and organizations.  Information about our partners is available on the "Community" tab.

How can you help?

We accept gently used furniture and household items from North Shore residents.  We welcome cash donations from everyone to cover the cost of storage and moving.
