Each year Household Goods furnishes over 2,500 homes with 60,000 pieces of furniture and smaller household items. Many of the people who need Household Goods are recently homeless, veterans, survivors of domestic violence, low income, single parents, victims of disaster, or are coping with illness or disability. They are referred to Household Goods by one of hundreds of social service agencies in Massachusetts. A small paid staff supports the 900 Household Goods volunteers who work 40,000 hours each year to make this possible. Since 2004, Household Goods has furnished 42,531 homes with over 630,000 household items.
Through the Build the Way Home Capital Campaign, Household Goods will make critical improvements to its building and site by building a road that will circle the building, adding an additional 4000 sq.ft. of interior space, and creating a second entrance to receive incoming donations.
