About Red Door Shelter Moving Program
Many families who come to the Red Door have little or no possessions because they have fled situations of abuse or suffered significant financial hardship. But when they are ready to move out of the shelter, our Moving Program reduces their moving costs and provides much-needed furniture and household items at no cost. These gently used items have been donated to us as gifts-in-kind and provide a valuable, tangible way to help families who are transitioning out of the shelter.
Without the Program, families leaving the shelter would need to purchase beds, sofas, dressers, appliances, etc, as well as pay for private movers or store delivery fees. The cost of furnishing a new home, coupled with high private market rental fees, is a heavy financial burden that can put many families at risk.
