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.


April 2021 Update

This month, our greatest impact was on the youngest and the most vulnerable in our local community, with almost double the number of children in families being assisted than in March.  So far this year, children in families comprised 18% of all of the people benefiting from Shelter to Home’s program. Thank you to all!  Please contact the donor line if you have any furniture items to donate: 778-331-8465, or email:

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.
