Hearts to Homes has helped over 200 individuals furnish their first apartment as they start life on their own after foster care. Here’s what six youth have said about the impact Hearts to Homes has made on their lives.
”Receiving all those boxes was like Christmas! It’s a really awesome feeling for someone who rarely receives gifts. Thank you!”
“With your help, I was able to have a big weight lifted off my shoulders. I was very worried about my transition from care to independent living, especially when it came to buying everything I would need. Luckily for me, you were able to help me. I know ‘stuff’ doesn’t make a place a home, but your help make it much easier to make this place a home. I am grateful.”
“I’d like to say thank you. Hearts to Home was like my karma coming around – for everything that was taken away from me, we’re going to give you everything right back. It’s a really satisfying feeling. Sometimes I put my baby to bed and I just go sit on the couch, and it is the most peaceful thing ever.”
“Thank you! It helps to have received all these items for my new apartment. I appreciate everything you have done to support me. Now I don’t have to worry about my apartment. I can focus on me and my family”
“I truly feel at home thanks to your donations. My favorite thing is the swivel chair. I feel happy that I can have family and guests over, and I’m proud of my home. It finally feels complete.”
“Before the delivery, my apartment was lonely and depressing. Now it feels like a home, and I am proud to be able to invite some friends over.”
