Welcome Baskets

Our clients typically do not have any of the things people need when they move into a new apartment. While it’s exciting for them to walk into their new space, we could use some help truly making their spaces “home.”

We are looking for individuals or groups who are interested in putting together “Welcome Baskets,” full of some of the new-home essentials, for our clients who are soon-to-be-housed. If interested in helping put together a Welcome Basket please contact Kait for more information.
