Dallas Furniture Bank
Dallas Furniture Bank provides furniture to families transitioning from homelessness; restoring normalcy and independence.
Dallas Furniture Bank’s program fills the missing gap in the continuum of care for transitional homeless and low-income families. Though many of our agency partners provide housing for those in need, the resource of furniture is not provided to approximately 90% of these families. At Dallas Furniture Bank, we believe that living spaces should be filled. Furniture not only fills a house with practical comfort, but also instills a sense of hope and dignity. DFB collects basic household furniture from private households and businesses and stores them in a warehouse for future distribution. Simply put, we coordinate the transfer of unwanted, usable furniture from people that wish to dispose of it, to those who desperately need it. Our mission is good for the environment, the economy, and, most importantly, people in need. Working with social service agencies that refer clients to us, DFB provides this basic furniture to previously homeless families and others in need, resulting in increased chances for self-sufficiency, higher levels of self-esteem, and long-term stability.
