We Need Your Financial Support - Donate Now

On any given night in Seattle and King County, there are more than 8,000 people who are homeless. Twenty-seven percent of those are under 18 years of age. In fact, 11% are five years and under. When they became homeless, due to domestic violence, catastrophic illness or other family crises, or job loss, they leave everything behind. Nothing is left with which to establish a new household when the time comes.

The good news is that each year, thousands of these people do find permanent housing. The Sharehouse has been providing free furniture to people moving from transitional to permanent housing since 1989.

The success of The Sharehouse relies heavily on financial support from the community. Operating expenses include gas and maintenance for a truck, and rent for warehouse space to hold the household items we acquire.

  • It costs more than $800 a day to pick up donated furniture.

  • It costs $250 to provide the minimum items needed to set up each new household.  For a contribution of $250 you can give a mother and two children a couch, three beds, linens, cleaning supplies, kitchen wares, a lamp, table and chairs!
