Bringing dignity to Families

 

In 2013 the FreeStore served 228 families, which included 355 children!

Founded in 2001, the FreeStore provides household items and furniture free of charge to women when they leave the Children & Families of Iowa's Domestic Violence Services.  We also provide these same items to needy families from other social agencies for a nominal fee. 

The FreeStore is entirely run by volunteers, with NO paid staff.  Volunteers are always needed to pick-up furniture, organize items in the warehouse, greet clients, help clients move furniture to their new apartments, and raise funds.

The FreeStore is always short of dressers so Iowa Prison Industries is building some.
