Recipients of Welcome Baskets are generally people who are:
1) homeless and moving into a low-income rental,
2) relocating due to an increase in rent at their current home, which they cannot afford.
The purpose of the Welcome Basket is to "welcome" the individual or family to their new home. It is a small act of grace from people or congregations to people in need. Securing an apartment requires a Security Deposit (often 2 or 3 months rent) which generally leaves the individual/family little or no expend- able income. A Welcome Basket helps people take care of, and pride in, their home environment.
