Who We Serve

I was so stressed, anxious, and embarrassed when I first arrived, but everyone made it easy to relax, making this a very pleasant and joyous experience for me.

At Mission of Deeds, we serve men, women, and children of all ages. Over 70 percent of the households we serve live at or below the federal poverty level.

Our sole mission is to provide basic home necessities, without charge, to those in need.

For 26 years, people like you have donated furniture and housewares to this cause. Your financial donations have helped us expand our reach and allow us to buy mattresses, box springs, pillows and linens. Our hard working volunteers furnish apartments of those who were previously homeless, survivors of domestic abuse, displaced Veterans, disadvantaged families, abandoned elderly, survivors of fire or other tragedies, refugees, those with disabilities and others in great need, often starting over due to unfortunate circumstances.

Together with your support, the Mission of Deeds continues Tony’s mission with kindness, respect and compassion, transforming the lives of those in need and bringing Hope when it is most needed.

We appreciate your ongoing support as we do not receive any government or United Way funding – it’s all “neighbors helping neighbors.” We depend on private contributions from individuals, business and foundations.

A homelessness family who was finally able to secure housing wrote, “To all the volunteers at the Mission of Deeds, we appreciate your time and certainly your patience in helping our family rebuild our lives.”

A client told us several years after receiving our help, “I have a job, my life is coming together, thank you.”
