Success Stories
“A local landlord made contact with our Bright Futures staff about one of his renters who is a mother of two.  He went to fix a leak and noticed there was no furniture in the home: no beds, no sofa, no chairs, and no table.  We posted the need and quickly got many donations from the community to furnish the home, and volunteers even helped move in the items.  The family was thrilled, and the actions of the landlord were very moving.  He cared enough to take a risk and ask if he could help his renter, and the fact that he knew he could ask Bright Futures Harrisonville for help means we have created a strong and positive reputation in our community.  On top of that, the landlord even stayed after all the ‘movers’ were gone to help set up and arrange the furniture.”
