we love social workers

Social Workers Welcome!

Thanks for checking out Gracing Spaces! When requesting home goods please contact us at least a week in advance, and keep in mind home make-overs happen about once a month. Please contact us by using our email address found on our “Contact” page, or using the contact form below. Read the information below and provide us with the following:

1. Most important:

  • The Social Worker will make a home visit.

  • If possible take a picture of client’s new space.

  • Check before making the family’s wish-list and just before the work day, to see if there has been a change in the family’s belongings.

  • We work hard to provide just what is needed, if the home is full of furniture, we cannot leave the items we have hand-picked for the family, a disappointment for the volunteers.

  • If the family has already moved in, the apartment must be picked up and ready for the volunteers to move in the furniture.

2. Family Needs:

  • Family Size, ages, gender and optional ethnic background

  • Favorite colors & interest

  • Address and floor plan if possible (i.e. 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom)

3. Transport of Goods, HELP Needed:

  • Reserve and provide a cargo van or truck or size appropriate vehicle to carry some the furniture to the home and be at the Lord of Life Clifton “depot” location at 8:00 am to help start loading the trucks

This is the right size truck to transport home goods and mattresses!

4. For Wednesday requests for pickup:

  • The above rules apply

  • Send us an e-mail at least one week in advance

  • The client or organization will provide an appropriate sized vehicle for the items requested

  • We ask that the social worker come to the Lord of Life Clifton “depot” location and take part in loading of the vehicle

  • The wish-list has been fulfilled and no new or additional requests will be honored on pick-up day. The social worker will inform client of what to expect before they arrive

  • Because of liability, Clients are not able to go in the Lord of Life Church “depot” but can help load items with their social worker

  • Smaller loads including clothing will be requested in the same fashion

We trust that when we receive a wish-list the need is true.
We love nothing more than to match up our gifts where there is a need.
