A Hand Up, Inc. distributes donated goods to help people transition from homelessness to independent living.

We have warehouse space at 93 Talcott Road in West Hartford to store our donated items.  We accept donations of gently used furniture and household goods – please see the “Wish List” tab on our website for specific information on what we need. We also need strong volunteers who can lift heavy household furniture to assist with pick-ups and deliveries and volunteers to help organize the warehouse. Please refer to the “About” tab for more information on how to get involved. Thanks for your interest in our organization!

(Note: Please do not drop things off at the warehouse location without making arrangements as it is not staffed.)

The transition from the streets to a new home can be tough.

Many people manage to escape homelessness, but come home to an empty house every night.

How would you live without even a cooking pot, a chair or a bed?

Sometimes everyone needs a hand up.
