No Child or Adult Sleeping On The Floor
Each night in America, hundreds of thousands of people sleep in places not meant for human habitation, and they live in homes without the basic essential furnishings needed for minimum human existence. Forty percent (40%) of that population is children.
Furniture banks are not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organizations whose mission is to provide furniture at little or no cost to families struggling with poverty and other severe life challenges. These families are financially unable to furnish their own homes to even a minimal standard. Furniture banks collect donations of gently used furniture, and provide the furniture at little or no cost to these families in need via referrals from other social service agencies, churches, schools, employers, etc.
