Help a Homeless Household Get a Fresh Start with a…
New Apartment Welcome Home Kit
At CCU, when we help an individual or family obtain an apartment after being homeless, they typically start from scratch. You can help them have a fresh start with a new apartment Welcome Home Kit.
|PART 1: KITCHEN|
|[ ] Kitchen trash can (approx. 11-13 gallon)
[ ] One plastic dish pan
[ ] One box of kitchen trash bags (13 gallon bags, 20 bags or more*)
[ ] One bottle of dishwashing liquid
[ ] Kitchen paper towels (2 rolls or more*)
[ ] Two kitchen handtowels/two kitchen dishcloths
Approx. Cost of Above: $40
|PART 2: BATH AND GENERAL CLEANING|
[ ] One laundry Basket
|PART 3: FIRST AID AND TOILETRIES|
|[ ] Toilet Tissue (6 regular rolls or 4 double rolls or more*)
[ ] One box of bandaids (100 or more* count, variety pack) OR first aid kit with bandaids
[ ] One tube of first aid antibiotic ointment (like Neosporin or generic)
[ ] One tube of toothpaste
[ ] Four toothbrushes

[ ] Bath soap (two bars or more*)

* OR MORE: When you see “or more,” there is no pressure to buy “more.” We need a general minimum to include in each kit. However, if a three pack of paper towels is on sale for cheaper than a two pack, go ahead and get the better deal.
Christian Churches United is a 501(c)3 non-profit social service agency founded as a collaboration of area churches to help those facing homelessness, poverty and incarceration. These kits are designed as a starter to get a household through their first few weeks while they get established, it is not intended to fully outfit their apartment.
