All of us are fans of the “comforts of home.” Home is where we seek shelter, security, and peace. Home is our launching pad. Home is where we have access to a bed for a good night’s sleep, a table to enjoy a meal and a chair to read a book.

For families transitioning out of homelessness to stable housing, they often have little if any furniture or household supplies. They move into new spaces without basic necessities for healthy and sustainable living.

Realtors® bring hope and dignity to families by furnishing apartments.

Since 2017, Realtors® have invested money and volunteer time to furnish 82 apartments for clients enrolled in programs at nonprofits including Family Promise, Families Together, CASA and The Carying Place. Realtors® sponsor apartments that cover the furniture, delivery and household products and volunteer to set up the apartment from top to bottom – beds made, pictures hung and kitchen organized.

Hillman Real Estate Group holds the record for furnishing apartments – seven years in a row.

Thanks to Renee Hillman of Hillman Real Estate Group for placing a huge value on giving back through the Realtor® Giving Network. Renee and her team have joyfully cleaned, rearranged furniture and hung countless pictures for seven families to live in beautifully furnished homes.

More families are waiting to live in well-equipped spaces.
