Your generous in-kind donations of household items and clothing are critical to ensuring families throughout Kansas City are better prepared to live in – and become thriving and engaged members of – their new community.

For most of us, the home is the center of our family life – creating a secure space where we can escape from the rest of the world to spend time with our loved ones. To help families and individuals resettle in our community, JVS accepts needed household donations to outfit the homes of our refugee clients. We accept new and gently-used donations.

How to Help through In-Kind Donations
