Beginning May 1st, 2019, all clients interested in the Fresh Start Furniture Program will need to be referred by one of many referral partner agencies. Prior to May 1st, please have clients call 443-519-2464 to speak with a donations coordinator. If you are interested in becoming a referral agency, please contact us HERE.
Our referral partners are an integral part of our Fresh Start Furniture Program. They help us to determine a clients need for our services and to ensure that our inventory goes to those families with the greatest urgency in Harford County. Please visit our HOW TO APPLY page to learn about program qualifications and to access services for your clients.
We do our best to serve your clients as completely and expediently as possible! To see a list of the items we are able to offer, please click here. Please note that we encourage pick-up of items if at all possible for the fastest service!
It is important to share with clients that all of our items are donated (meaning used previously in some way) and only meant to serve them temporarily until they can afford new furniture. While our inventory is acceptable according to the IRS’s definition of good or better condition, we have found that condition is subjective to some clients. We want to serve every person to the best of our ability and also to avoid the discarding of items that others may greatly appreciate. If you have a client that has very specific needs or expectations, please call and speak directly to our Program Director Evelyn McSorley at 443-519-2464 and she will be happy to discuss what we have available.
