Helping Homes is a 501c3 non-profit that supports recent immigrant and refugee families in our local community through the acquisition and delivery of gently used household items (beds, couches, dressers, clothes, kitchenware, rugs, side tables, lamps, towels, bedding, etc.). We are not affiliated with any religious, governmental or political organizations.


We are a group of community members from the Portland Metropolitan area that includes educators, social workers, counselors, business leaders, lawyers, real estate developers, and technology experts, who have mobilized and are contributing expertise to meet a critical need in the most efficient and effective way possible. We have been partnering with the Newcomer Program in the Beaverton School District, which includes 50 families with students ranging in age from pre-K to 12th grade. We are prioritizing these families but also assisting other immigrant and refugee families in the area as well, and we hope to expand services across the city and beyond.

Who We Are & What We Do

Reading with Grandpa_edited.jpg


Helping Homes provides comfort and care to immigrants and refugee families through the expeditious distribution of needed household goods and services.



  1. Partner with school districts, social workers, counselors, and other community agencies to identify immigrant and refugee families in need of resettlement support.

  2. Develop a network of donors who can provide essential household goods, money to acquire these goods, and providers willing to donate essential services.

  3. Utilize technological tools such as an application and/or web-based platform that can efficiently link needed goods and services with target families, and arrange delivery and installation through a network of volunteers.
