Give a real homecoming

 Help the DRC stock the pantry and linen closet for each family or individual who escapes homelessness through DRC housing solutions. 

New householders are more likely to succeed in putting the streets behind them when they set up housekeeping with all the essentials of kitchen, bed and bath.

Choose individual items, full kitchen, bed or bath sets, or buy a complete household package.
