Simple Household Needs

Our Simple Household Needs program supports people who are emerging from homelessness or are otherwise in need.

The program has two components:

The first component of Simple Household Needs involves ‘cleaning kits’ to help families sanitize and dignify their surroundings. Our donors and volunteers buy or donate the components for the kits, which are new laundry baskets filled with paper towels, glass cleaner, Spic & Span, a utility pail, bathroom tissue, laundry detergent, Comet, a toilet bowl brush, sponges, dish detergent, a brush/dust pan, disinfectant spray, a dish brush, and toilet bowl cleaner.

xMPVVnuOKfEKEVGTpls51p0quRaHP7FzGt94ZWCPAlISocial workers help us distribute these kits to families. They also go to our furniture clients (see below) and to several agencies who shelter clients in apartments (such as the YWCA).

The second part of our program involves collecting new or gently used items that can help people in need turn a house or apartment into a home.

We take donations of gently used (no damage, stains or tears) of furniture such as beds, tables and chairs, dressers and more. We also collect smaller items such as linens, dishes, silverware… think of the essential items you would need if you had nothing in a new home.

Here’s a full list of our needed items.

A NOTE ON LARGE FURNITURE: We have a small storage unit in which we store donations. Due to the small size of that unit, we can’t accept every donation. We ask that you email brenda@simpleneedsga.org with a list of what you have, along with photos, so that we can determine what we can use at that time. We do pick up donations when we have trucks and volunteers available.
