The people who come to Household Goods have at least one thing in common-- they need help during a difficult time.

Many in need are: recently homeless; veterans; fleeing domestic violence; children, youth or elderly in need of services; living with disability or illness; victims of fires; and/or trying to get by on minimum wage.
