Located at 44th & Kalamazoo in the Towne & Country Plaza. 


We are only able to help because of YOU!

We respect the families we serve and try to give them a dignified experience at ITI. To help make their house a home, please think of giving items in good condition, new or gently used. We are

unable to accept items that are broken, ripped, or soiled. 

Due to COVID-19, our manpower has decreased; when donating items, please give only the needed items listed below and separate items as much as possible. This helps get your donations into the hands of those in need faster. 


Please do not leave donations unattended on our property after donation hours. We appreciate your understanding, cooperation, and of course your gifts!
