Compassion House needs a hand

September 14, 2010

Compassion House’s newest downtown duplex is in need of some compassion itself.

Compassion House, a nonprofit provider of transitional housing for homeless families, has created a list of household items that could help turn the new duplex into a home.

The list includes a 72-inch sofa, two end tables, a 60-inch desk, desk chair and lamp, a 48-inch TV table with shelves, a DVD player, two stuffed chairs, a computer and printer, a coat rack, area rugs, art work, a 48-inch desk and chair, a 36-by-72-inch bookshelf, a 21-by-68-inch dresser and a desk lamp.

The duplex, at 260 S.E. Andrews St., will provide housing for two homeless families. Compassion House volunteers work with the families to help them become self-sufficient.
