Charlotte Family Housing Amazon Wishlist

All in-kind donation needs align with three important elements of our programming at Charlotte Family Housing:

Motivation Assistance Points Store

Our Motivation Assistance Points (MAP) Store is a key part of empowering our families by helping them foster financial literacy. Through our MAP system, clients receive credits for achieving certain programmatic milestones. They then use MAP credits to purchase items from the store for their new homes. You can view the items needed for our MAP Store here.

Happy Home Buckets

When families move into housing, we provide them with a "Happy Home" Bucket that includes basic housecleaning essentials. You can view the items needed for Happy Home Buckets here.

Welcome Baskets

When families enter our shelter phase, we provide them with a Welcome Basket that includes basic living essentials. You can view the items needed for our Welcome Baskets here.
