Nonprofit Overview

Mission: Deserving Decor is a 501(c)(3) all-volunteer, non-profit charity that depends on donations from generous individuals, community groups and businesses to provide donated furniture and new twin beds to women and children escaping domestic violence, homelessness, and teens who have aged out of foster care.

Results: In the past year, Deserving Decor has provided 183 new twin beds for kids without them and furnished 61 apartments with donated furniture. We also started our Housewarming Helpers program, this past summer. Volunteers deliver donated household goods to families who have recently received furniture and bed deliveries.

Target demographics: Women, children and fosters transitioning from homelessness

Direct beneficiaries per year: over 100 single mothers, children and fosters

Geographic areas served: Bucks County, Pennsylvania

Programs: Essential furnishings for women and children leaving domestic violence and homeless shelters and fosters who age out of the program at 18, and move into rental properties.

Beth and her crew are just amazing! In addition to their usual good work, they have come through in a pinch at the last minute on many occasions. I have lost count of the number of bare and/or rundown apartments Deserving Decor has furnished and decorated for my clients, both in shelter and moving out of homelessness. The heart of these incredible volunteers shows through in the amount of time and physical labor they put into each project, as well as the attention they pay to every last detail. I have seen women cry tears of joy at the beauty they never imagined possible. I have witnessed the amazement and gratitude of youth and families who would need months to furnish their new homes, let alone accessorize them. The impact on the recipients' self-esteem is indescribable. Deserving Decor is truly a blessing in our community.

Deserving Decor has helped many families, mainly women and children, turn their living space into a home by providing furnishings, bedding materials and most recently, beds. They have also worked to bring awareness to Domestic Violence.

I have volunteered for Deserving Decor for three years. It has been a very rewarding experience for me. It is nice to know that you are making a difference in someone's life by providing them with a comfortable and safe environment to live in. Deserving Decor is very dedicated to helping provide essential furnishings and household items for women and children in need in Bucks County. We collaborate our efforts with Good Stuff Thrift Stores, A Woman's Place, Bucks County Housing Group and R.J.Leonard Foundation. It is a very worthwhile organization to support. Gerri Kraske

I have been involved with Deserving Decor for 4+ years. I started out helping clean, furnish and decorate shelter apartments. The group has helped 100s of women and children leaving domestic abuse shelters and escaping homelessness. Now we help these individuals as well as homeless veterans and foster children get back on their feet when they move into their first apartments. We provide necessities, such as beds, tables, dressers, couches, bedding and linens, kitchen essentials,etc to the families free of charge so they can set up their home and be successful as they start over. This is an amazing organization doing wonderful things for people.
