At Partners in Housing, we welcome each family with open arms and a basket filled with core essentials to get started on their path to self-sufficiency. We’ve expanded this tradition, and now give families the opportunity to celebrate meaningful milestones and special occasions during their time with us.

All baskets listed below are filled with new items. If you have gently used items that you would like to donate, visit here. If you would like to build a basket or purchase individual items, please visit our Amazon Wish List and Walmart Wish List where all items are located, or contact Tarin, our Volunteer and In-Kind Donation Coordinator at or (719) 559-3286. If you would like to cover the cost of a basket or partially cover the cost, visit here.
