Real Needs

Meeting real needs for real people in real time.

Sometimes people find themselves in need of help for a variety of reasons. The purpose of Real Needs is to identify tangible needs, find 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 large database of donors—people who may have used items that are in good shape. Then a moving team picks up the items from the donor and delivers them to the recipient. This process means the items are loaded and unloaded only once.

What needs are filled: We fill requests for large 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
