Move-in boxes

For individuals or families who have experienced homelessness, moving into an apartment is a life-changing experience. Unfortunately, the reality is that they will have very few possessions, if any, to bring with them, and few resources to pay for necessary items. Places for People seeks donations to provide “Move-In Boxes” to help make an apartment a home.
