Our Mission

WoMen in Relocation provides a forum for all relocation professionals to network, strategic and develop public awareness campaigns to support individuals and small communities in need of housing assistance. This collaborative group was founded with the hope of building and encouraging relationships to support our nation’s housing needs one small community at a time.  To be a member-in-good-standing all we ask is that you donate to the group we choose to support each year.

Sweet note from Kate Bialo, Executive Director of Furniture Sharehouse:

Dear Silvana and Members of WoMen in Relocation,

On behalf of the many families in need who will be able to transform their empty apartments in cozy and comfortable homes, I want to thank WoMen in Relocation for selecting Furniture Sharehouse as your 2017 Holiday Charity Beneficiary.  We were thrilled when Silvana visited our warehouse in the fall and told us we had been selected, but never dreamed we would receive over $4,800, thanks to your generosity!

It was a pleasure meeting you all and having a chance to share with you what it means to our clients to be able to receive free furniture at a difficult time in their lives.  Families moving from homeless shelters, reuniting after foster care, individuals struggling with illness or disabilities – we furnish them not just with beds and tables and dressers, we furnish them with hope and dignity.

Once again, thank you so much for your support, and we wish you warm and wonderful holiday season and a happy and healthy New Year!


Kate Bialo

Update! We enjoyed a wildly successful fundraising 11th Annual Silent Auction and Holiday Luncheon event to benefit Furniture Sharehouse! We raised over $6K for the group and presented our first “Spirit Award” to a very deserving (and totally surprised) Barb Barisonek of Turpin Realtors!
