Astrup Family Sponsors Their First Down Home Move-In to Support a Family Emerging from Homelessness


“Our family and friends had so much fun on move in night. The Down Home crew had every last detail worked out and made the experience so enjoyable. We give a 10 out of 10 - recommend getting involved with DH & their mission,” shared Beth Astrup.

Down Home (DH) is grateful for move-in sponsor, Mike & Beth Astrup Family, and their powerful impact. Alongside friends, they removed major barriers for a family of 5 emerging from homelessness. In time for the holidays, they now all have beds to sleep on, a table to eat at, a living room to relax in, and an inspiring home to invite others to enjoy. “ We left the apartment with happy hearts, thinking about this family of five sleeping in their very own beds after being homeless for two years ,” reflected Beth.

Founded in 2017, DH turns moving in - into moving home. Alongside the community, DH is boots on the ground. Their hearts help them do the heavy lifting by offering hope with their hands and feet, providing a transformative fresh start, designing a life changing space - a place that fosters dignity and hope.
