Move-Out Program

Move-Out Program Updates:

*New: Updated April 11, 2024

Dear LCS Supporters,

We will update this page on a by-request basis as we have guests scheduled to move out of the shelter and into their new homes. Due to limited storage space and staff/volunteer availability, we can only accept furniture donations when we put out a specific request. Check this page regularly for by-request updates! Currently, we are only accepting furniture donations listed below. Pick up or Drop off appointments of large furniture must be scheduled in advance, and small household items on this list can be dropped off at LCS between 8 AM – 6 PM unless otherwise scheduled. All items must be clean, in good working condition, and ready to use.


  • 1 Queen Mattress → NEED FILLED
    • 1-2 Sets of Queen sized bed sheets (fitted sheet, flat sheet, pillow cases) (non-matching is okay)
    • 2 Clean pillows
  • 2 Vacuum Cleaners
  • Set of Dishware:
    • 4 Plates
    • 4 Bowls
    • 2 Mugs and/or Cups
    • Set of dining utensils (forks, spoons, knives)
  • Set of Cookware:
    • 1 Pot
    • 1 Pan
    • Set of cooking utensils (i.e. spatula, cooking spoon, etc.)
  • Sets of Bath Towels & Washcloths (always accepted)
  • Twin-size sets of bed sheets (always accepted)
  • Lightweight blankets (always accepted, must be easily washable)

Move-out day is the most exciting time for someone staying at our shelter, and your support makes a huge difference in helping someone’s new place truly feel like home! Thank you so much for your patience and ongoing support while we work on building our move-out program back up!!

December 5, 2023 (Farewell to our longtime move-out coordinators!)

It is with a heavy heart, but also with deep gratitude for the past eight years, that we announce the suspension of the Move-Out Program.

The program may recommence, possibly in a modified form, in the coming months. Please check back.

The program’s mission has been to accept donations from members of the community and to work with case managers at LCS and partner agencies in order to provide basic furniture to individuals and families exiting homelessness within Douglas County.

Since its founding in October 2015, the Move-Out Program has accepted countless donations and brought furniture to approximately 525 households.

To our donors, to case managers at LCS and our partner agencies, to the other volunteers who joined us along the way (especially Will and Hazlett), and to all the individuals and families who have worked so hard to exit homelessness, we are eternally grateful.

The Move-Out Team,
Laura and Dan

We are only able to accept the specific items listed under CURRENT NEEDS. Please note if you’re able to drop-off your donation.

After consulting our list of CURRENT NEEDS, please complete this form. If a drop-off or pick-up needs to be scheduled for larger furniture, then someone will reach out to you within 3 days to arrange that. Thank you so much for supporting our Move-Out Program!
