HELPING WITH FURNITURE (HWF) - HWF started up in 2005 when two women observed that many families in Ottawa struggle due to lack of basic furnishings such as beds to sleep in or tables to eat at. The founders began by assisting families with a few furnishings. HWF grew such that in 2017, it furnished five homes each week with a 100% volunteer team.
In addition to providing furnishings for the Interchurch Refugee Group’s latest family, HWF also assists Canadians or permanent residents who have been displaced by domestic violence and house fires that have required new beginnings in new homes. Those helped are usually referred by community services agencies.
HWF is a charity registered with Revenue Canada and operates from a small warehouse on Canotek. For more information, visit the website: www.hwfottawa.org.
How can you help? Financial donations are always gratefully received. If you have home furnishings that are in good condition but which you can no longer use, HWF may be able to put such furnishings in the home of families in need.
