Who We Serve
Furniture Bank supports marginalized and displaced families and individuals experiencing furniture poverty.
Clients – including women and children leaving shelters, people transitioning from homelessness, and newcomers and refugees to Canada – are referred to us by over 90 community agency partners.
For our clients, furniture has a profound impact on their quality of life:
- Decreased likelihood of re-experiencing displacement or homelessness.
- Improved physical and mental health.
- Improved financial stability by freeing up funds for other essential items.
- Increase ability and likelihood to participate in and contribute to the community and improved relationships with family and friends.
