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.
May 2022 Update
The last week of May was a whirlwind of activity as we had client referrals from six referring agencies. We served 17 clients for the month, including 7 refugees from Afghanistan and Iran. In the first week of June we served a Ukrainian refugee family of 5.

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.
