Home for Good
Every day, United Way helps individuals and families stop the cycle of homelessness. We invite you to help welcome families home—for good. You can help ensure that people who were once homeless but are now moving into a new home have the essential supplies they need.
Join us in creating Home for Good baskets to provide basic household essentials to families in need.
Our goal is to make the transition to a new home just a little warmer for local individuals and families – together, united, we can help 120 local families.
Give now through April 30 to help a local family in need.
What is a Home for Good Basket?
As individuals and families transition out of homelessness, they are often starting over. Many are moving into their new home with little to no personal or household items and most people in need of basic household supplies for the kitchen, bathroom, and more. United Way Home for Good baskets are designed to provide basic household necessities and the essential supplies needed to create a safe and stable home.
Who will receive the Home for Good baskets?
Baskets will be distributed by our community partners to individuals and families who are transitioning out of homelessness and moving into their own warm, stable homes, right here in our community. Every donation matters and will help welcome home a family for good.
How can you help?
Give now to help provide Home for Good basket essentials to a local family in need. With your financial donation, we can maximize our buying power to purchase items in bulk and ultimately help more people in need. You can help provide much-needed household essentials, and make a family’s new place feel like home. We will not be accepting donations of physical goods at this time.
Local Companies Can Become a Basket Backer
Local companies are invited to serve as a Basket Backer and provide one or more baskets to help local individuals and families in our community. As a Basket Backer, your company logo will be printed on a card that is included when the Home for Good basket is delivered to a family in need. United Way will also recognize your company as a Basket Backer on our social media channels, lifting you up as a local company who cares about making sure we all have a place that feels like home. Click here to become a Basket Backer.
Volunteer Opportunity: Make a blanket for a local child in need
For many parents who have experienced homelessness, moving in to a new home is exciting and emotional, but also stressful as they often don’t have the supplies needed to make their home feel like home, especially for their kids. You can help.
We’re asking the community to help provide fleece tie blankets so that Home for Good baskets provided to families can also include a warm, cheerful, and colorful blanket for kids to have as they settle into their new home. This is a wonderful option for families to volunteer together, and have fun in the process! Kids of all ages can participate in this volunteer activity that can be done safely from your own home.
Click here to let us know if you’ll be providing one or more blankets.

Blankets can be dropped off at United Way of Cass-Clay (4351 23rd Ave. S, Fargo) now through May 7, 2021.
After living at a local homeless shelter for four months, Sharla and her family moved into an apartment of their own. Because of donors, like you, when they arrived, a Home for Good basket was there waiting for them on their front step. Read more.
