Our Purpose

House by the Side of the Road’s purpose is to provide adequate clothing and small household items at no charge to children and adults. These services are free to clients with limited funds for clothing, bedding, and other household essentials. People come in after family breakup, job loss, fire, or prolonged illness. We also serve those who are homeless, those who are just reentering society from prison, people with mental health issues, recent immigrants, and migrant workers.

Ask our clients what made them choose us and you’re likely to get many different answers. There’s one thing they’ll all agree on though; we deliver outstanding results in record time. Clients often remark how friendly, helpful and welcoming we are.
