The International Institute is contractually obligated to provide essential household furnishings, e.g., bed and frame, table and chair per family member, lamps in rooms without overhead lights, etc. While we have an arrangement to purchase beds, tables and chairs, we rely on community donations to fit many of the other needs.

Also, please accept our apologies in advance if you offer furnishings that we cannot take. Ths small number of staff cannot always respond quickly to a pick-up request, especially if it is a great distance away from our facility. And we do not have storage space. So we can only accept large donations when we have a household into which we can immediately place the donated item.
Finally, from time to time Institute staff identifies products which, if donated, can stretch our limited budget to cover other essentials. Such items can include 1” binders, blank copy machine/printer paper, or in a few cases computer software or equipment (when the donation is approved in advance).

Thanks in advance!
