Every family that enters a housing assistance program worries how they will be able to live in an apartment when they don’t have a bed, a table, or plates. When we tell them Community Warehouse can provide the basic items they need to get started in their new place, their look of relief is so profound. People know what it means to be able to put a meal on the table, clean sheets on a bed, even a throw pillow on a couch. Those are the comforts of home that allow folks the breathing room to build a pathway for their future: create stability, meet their neighbors, stay. Megan Rorick Smith
