St. Lukes Church - Partners in Housing Transition
Partners in Housing Transition, operational since 1991, is a non-profit organization that provides basic home furnishings to formerly homeless families, aiding them in turning an empty space into a hopeful home. Families are referred to the organization by several partner agencies including Caring Network, Community Healing Centers, Goodwill Lifeguides, Healthy Baby Healthy Start, Housing Resources Inc., Kalamazoo Probation Enhancement Program, Open Doors, Parent to Parent, Parishioners of St. Luke’s, Samaritas, and YWCA’s Domestic Assault Program. The support of these partners has enabled the organization to provide furniture to hundreds of families.
Currently, the organization is seeking additional furnishings, specifically:
- dining tables & chairs
- pots & pans
- beds, sheets, and towels
- small appliances, and kitchen utensils
The Executive Director of Partners in Housing Transition, Keshia Dickason, may be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org

Mattress Mart Helps Victims of House Fire
Losing what you have in a house fire is devastating. Mattress Mart recently donated mattresses to a local family who lost everything in a house fire. We wish this family the best in getting back on their feet and were happy to help in what little way we could by providing them at least a place to sleep while they awaited their new home.
