Fresh Start Furnishings - Furniture program

What is the Fresh Start Furnishings program and how did it get started?

Denise O’Halloran and her sister Gail Frangiamore are the two volunteers behind this amazing program. They collect furniture, store it and deliver it the apartments that we use to shelter our guests. They not only furnish and stage every apartment of ours, but also every time a family moves on from our shelter they will furnish their new home as well. They meet with the family, gauge their interests and style and provide them with all of the items they need to furnish their new home! We are so grateful for Denise and Gail! 

The impact this program has made

Since starting this program in May of 2015. Denise and Gail have completed over 60 moves

By donating furniture items to Family Promise of Waukesha County, you can make a difference in the lives of families experiencing homelessness who have worked hard to regain sustainable independence. Your donations help furnish graduates' new homes after they have moved on from our program.
