Please note that Welcome House is unable to accept donations of used clothing, bedding, linens, or towels. Only new items of this type can be taken as donations. Thank you for your understanding.
Everyone is asked to wear masks and maintain a distance of 6 feet from others if possible while in our office, and to not visit if you have symptoms or known exposure to covid-19. To coordinate a donation drop-off, or for any donation-related questions, please contact Natalie Endres at firstname.lastname@example.org or (859) 292-9352.
How do I drop off?
You can drop off donations Mon-Fri 9:00am-4:30pm at 205 W. Pike St., Covington, KY 41011. No appointment necessary unless you need help unloading. If you need help unloading or are unsure if we are able to accept a certain item, please reach out to Natalie Endres at email@example.com or (859) 292-9352 during business hours. Please do not leave donations at the door after hours, as they will be exposed to the elements and possible theft overnight.

At Welcome House, we want to provide the best service we can to our clients. It is important to us to make sure that if a client is living on the streets, they are given resources necessary to survive. If they are transitioning into stable housing, we want to ensure that they can make their house a home.
The Welcome House and the Welcome House clients rely on the kindness of our gracious donors to help provide the items necessary in order to provide safety, stability, and care.
With that being said, you’re probably wondering what is a resource bag? We are working on a new, innovative way of thinking about donations and the items we desperately need – which are ultimately based off of what we hear from our clients and their needs.
Our goal is to acquire the necessary items and collect them into different “themed” bags so our direct service employees can distribute much needed resources to our clients with great ease and efficiency.
As a donor, you have two options to assist us with the Resource Bags:
- Download the shopping list PDF, shop for selected items, and then re-create your own Resource Bag(s).
- Download the shopping list PDF, purchase the items, and bring them to the Welcome House where the bags can be assembled by volunteers.
We welcome you to either option and appreciate your support in a new, innovative way of thinking. You are a key part in helping us end homelessness!
