We do not replace or upgrade furniture you may already have.We provide gently used furniture and household items to families at or below the poverty level struggling with fire, flood, job loss, domestic violence relocation, foster child aging out, or someone moving from transitional housing. If you are sleeping, eating or living on the floor we want to help provide the items you cannot afford to purchase.

All furniture is gently used and the inventory changes daily and there are no returns. You will be charged a processing fee of $50 payable at the time of your furniture selection. If you take furniture with you on the day of your appointment you will be required to have a vehicle big enough to take everything you select on the day of your appointment. You may not make multiple trips to take the furniture home. Delivery is available for an additional $100. Only one visit is allowed to the furniture bank in your lifetime.
