Associate Board Launches
Household Move-In Items Campaign at
Walmart Spark Good

Renaissance works diligently to forge relationships with unhoused individuals and families, transition them to housing, and provide ongoing supportive services. This year we expect to support more than 900 households that will need roofs over their heads and essential items. Many of the people moving into these units will have only the clothes on their backs. 


To help these individuals and families transition into their new homes, please click below to purchase much needed household items. 


Volunteers broaden and deepen the impact of Renaissance's services for individuals and families in need.

Please complete our Volunteer Form and we will follow up with you to discuss opportunities. We look forward to welcoming you to our team!
