Mission of Deeds works with social service agencies, housing authorities, schools, hospitals, and religious organizations who refer clients to us for assistance in furnishing their homes. These community partners ensure that the clients we help are in real need and that the process proceeds smoothly.

Any helping organization may refer a client to us as long as there is no family relationship between the referring individual and the client. Here are referral organizations we have worked with in the past. New organizations are welcome. There is no application process or fee. However, for each client, a referral form is necessary and is available below.

Our clients are low-income individuals and families, many with children, including those who are recently homeless, fleeing domestic violence, veterans, refugees, the elderly, or those living with a disability.

“Your organization is the most worthy of praise. You really do help the needy when they need it the most. I was a recipient of you once. I’ll never forget how happy you made me, and I’ve donated since I got back on my feet. Thank you all for your hard work.”
