Fargo Non-profit, DownHome, Looking to Create a Forever Home for Families in Need

They are providing furnishings and décor to families transitioning from homelessness into permanent housing

FARGO, N.D. — Imagine being able to provide a family in need with a home that not only feels like theirs, but an opportunity to have a seamless transition.

That’s what a new non–profit, called DownHome is doing.

They are providing furnishings and décor to families transitioning from homelessness into permanent housing.

From ideas, to construction, to the day of move in, the founders are with families every step of the way.

“We really want to turn an empty space into a place to embrace for these families that truly need that financial barrier to be relieved so that they can really focus on family and focus on paying their rent and establishing themselves in the community,” said Jenessa and Jacob Fillipi, the Directors and Founders of DownHome.

They are currently looking for donations.
