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.
