Friends thank you for your continued support. Your donations of money, furniture, and other items helped turn a place to live into a home for 610 households in 2022.
Your support over the last 4 years has provided for 1734 households, that is 4200 people, with 46% of them being children.
We are looking forward to a new year and all that it brings. During the growth of last year we have seen our costs increase and a need for paid employees.
We will be finding ways to create an income stream, along with finding more grants and monthly supporters.
Stay tuned for some exciting news.
What we do
We collect basic furniture and household items to provide to those transitioning from homelessness into their own homes.
You can help us accomplish our mission by donating money and volunteering your time and talents.
We receive donations of basic furniture and household items, rescuing them from being sent to the landfill. Then we deliver the beds, dressers, kitchenware, etc. to our clients according to their needs, at no cost, to help turn a house into a home.
We receive client referrals from the area homeless and women’s shelters (See Our Partners page for more infomation). Our clients have worked very hard to overcome homelessness and are moving into their own housing.
We are committed to helping people who need it most. Read about their experiences and successes with Central Furniture Rescue.
