First Home Volunteer

The First Home Program helps furnish apartments for mothers who are moving from St. Joseph's Center's shelter or transitional housing program to permanent housing. The goal of the program is to make a mother's dream come true - to have a place to call home - to have her own First Home.

 Volunteers can help mothers with these tasks:

  • Receive and manage furniture donations  
  • Shop for household items for the new apartment
  • Pick and lay out furniture
  • Hang curtains or blinds
  • Clean the new apartment
  • Bring mothers' belongings to the new home
