People are referred to the charity by organisations like children’s centres, social services & domestic violence charities.  When people are re-homed, they are often given a place to stay but not all essentials like a fridge or bed. The generous community provides these goods that volunteers deliver to those who need it. This helps turn empty houses into homes!
