WHAT IS A FURNITURE BANK?

Furniture Banks are registered charities, not-for-profit organizations or social enterprises designed to provide gently used household furnishings to individuals and families in need, at little or no cost.

The movement, which originated in the United States, is now firmly established and continuing to gain momentum in Canada. The basic model involves gently used furniture being donated by people who no longer use it, and transferred to those who are struggling financially to furnish their own homes. Usually, a network of community agencies ensures that the right people get access to the furniture.

It’s a cycle of giving and helping, providing the most vulnerable individuals in society the means to create a true home.
