NOTICE: We are accepting donations, but at limited capacity due to COVID-19, and we are being a little more selective about what we can and cannot accept. 

Helping to furnish a home with new or used furniture and household items is a great way to meet immediate needs of refugee families in the Seattle area.Refugee families often flee their homes at a moment's notice or come from crowded refugee camps. They arrive at SeaTac airport with few belongings, a difficult past, and high hopes for the future. Asylees who have won their asylum case, are released from the Detention Center in Tacoma with little more than the clothes they are wearing. As part of the resettlement process, World Relief Seattle secures and furnishes safe and affordable apartments for these newcomers as they begin a new life in Washington.

You can also visit our Amazon Registry to directly purchase the highest need items for refugees’ first apartments and have them sent directly to our office for immediate use!
