Real Needs

Meeting real needs for real people in real time.

Sometimes people find themselves in need of help for a variety of reasons, whether it’s the loss of a job, damage to their home, or fleeing an abusive situation.

Real Needs exists to identify tangible needs, source those items, and deliver them to the recipient.

How it works: Community service agencies on the Palouse can submit a request to Real Needs on behalf of a client. The staff at Real Needs broadcasts the need to our database of donors—people who may have used items in good shape. Then, a moving team picks up the items from the donor and delivers them to the recipient.

What needs are met: We primarily fill requests for large household items such as couches, dressers, bed frames, headboards, mattresses, tables, chairs, end tables, etc.

"What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, “Go in peace, keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it?"
James 2:14–16
