REALTOR® Foundation Service Committee members assemble Ikea kitchen tables and chairs so formerly homeless families can sit down and share meals together. The Foundation purchased the tables/chairs and volunteers spent an afternoon at The Green Chair Project putting them together. This activity highlights how the Foundation supplies housing nonprofits with financial and volunteer support to help transition families from homelessness to stable housing.
About Green Chair Project
The Green Chair Project is a 501(c)(3) that provides home furnishings donated from our community for families and individuals who have transitioned from experiencing homelessness or disasters and have secured sustainable housing.
The reusable gifts are cleaned and repaired by volunteers and are presented in a way that promotes dignity and respect. For a small fee, families working with case managers from partnering agencies can select furniture, linens, cookware and accessories to outfit their new homes.
The Green Chair experience encourages families to prioritize and make choices and empowers them to create their surroundings and rebuild their lives.
