The Quality of Life Foundation recently teamed up with Furnishing Hope to coordinate a “Home in a Box” for a family of 8 from Chesterton, Indiana. The family was in need of all new furniture and linens due to mold challenges in their home. Because the family is living on a fixed income, they could not afford to replace the furniture all at once.
With the help of the family’s Family Support Coordinator (FSC), Sharon, and Beth Phillips from Furnishing Hope, they were able to provide the family with a “Home in a Box” worth nearly $11,000. This included six twin beds along with sheet sets, mattress pads, blankets, and quilts to for those beds. It also included one queen mattress and frame, sheets, a mattress pad, blanket and a comforter for the queen bed as well. The “Home in a Box” also supplied the family with a sofa and other living room furniture, a dining room table and chairs, down pillows, towels and some decorations.
A huge thank you to FSC Sharon, Beth Phillips and Furnishing Hope, and all of the volunteers that were able to make this possible!
