Care Kits and furniture for Men Going HOME
Each time a resident is successfully discharged from Joseph’s Home, we send him off with a “care kit” to help him establish his new home. This care kit contains home essentials such as pots and pans, sheets and blankets, towels, dinnerware, dishes – everything that makes a home comfortable and safe. Please consider helping a newly discharged resident of Joseph’s Home start his new life in his new home by assembling your own care kit.

Residents who have completed their housing search are often in need of furniture such as beds, tables, dressers and lamps. Before you discard any unneeded items like these, please contact (216) 685-1551to see if one of our men would benefit from your donation.
