Overview

Heading Home is looking forward to Nashoba Brook’s Up & Out on Sunday, April 3, 2016. Up & Out offers volunteer groups with the opportunity to make a huge impact on a homeless family’s life as they make the milestone move from shelter into permanent housing. Families moving into affordable, permanent housing through Up & Out have faced adversity, but leading up to and following the move they receive intensive support services to remain on track and housed.

The actual move includes cleaning, furnishing and personalizing the apartment to the family’s taste and transforming the apartment into a “home.” Furniture and housewares are either purchased new through funds raised, donated new or gently used. The half-day experience concludes with revealing the apartment to the family and presenting them the keys to their new home. Ways you can participate in the Up & Out move include:

  • Contribute new or gently used furniture and housewares
  • Donate to help purchase items that need to be new (e.g., beds, linens)
  • Volunteer the day of the move (e.g., assemble furniture, buy groceries)

No matter how you participate, you will be making a difference. Thank you for your support and involvement!

Client Background

Gerty and her 17-year-old daughter Samantha have been working with Heading Home since 2014. They were referred to Heading Home because she could not afford rent in the Boston area. Immediately following their referral, the family was placed into one of our shelters. In addition to housing, we provide our clients with financial education and career coaching so they can get ahead and build a brighter future for their families. Gerty has been working as a medical assistant for the past four years and plans to go back to school to get her nursing degree this fall. Gerty’s new apartment will provide her entire family with a home of their own, including her 23-year-old son. Heading Home will continue to provide support services so she can remain on track and stay housed.

Please consider contributing to the Nashoba Brooks 7th Grade Up & Out move!

Funds raised will be used to pay for items that must be new (e.g., beds, linens), the truck rental and other household items. The average cost to move a family is $4,000-$5,000 if all items are purchased new. However, this amount may be decreased significantly, both through cash and in-kind donations.

Thank you!

Helpful Information

  • Average cost to move a family is $4,000-$5,000 if all items are purchased new; cost can be offset by donations of gently used items.
  • Most of the items below can be collected prior to knowing the family moving. At the "meet & greet," the family’s preferences will be learned to help personalize the home.
  • Typically Up & Outs take place in 1-2 bedroom apartments; number of bedrooms varies depending on size of family, but plan on at least one child.
  • Electronic devices (e.g., televisions, computers) are welcomed, but not required.
  • Any items you do not use at your move can be donated to Heading Home for another family.
  • On the day of the move, don’t forget a general tool box (hammer, level, tape measure), picture hangers and sparkling cider and paper cups (for the toast as we welcome the family into its new home!).
