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.
December 2022 Update
Just because it’s the holidays, doesn’t mean that clients don’t need our help. Clients were met right up til December 31, with a pick-up of furniture for a family arranged for January 1. Shelter Movers, a volunteer organization which moves women and children who have fled domestic violence, responded with 3 days notice to move a family on New Year’s Day.
A record has been set in 2022 for the highest number of clients served in a year….210 men women and children have been served in 2022. Our response to Silver Lynn fire victims and Ukrainian refugees accounts for the increased number served.

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.
