Many families in the Atlanta area can barely afford housing and food, let alone a bed to sleep on or a table to sit at. They may be sleeping on a cold floor with just a blanket to cover them. Not only is this uncomfortable, it creates health, social and developmental issues. Furniture is a basic need that affects how a person feels about themselves and also how well they perform in the work place or at school. The Furniture Bank fills this basic need by recycling used furniture from individuals and companies and giving it to people in need. By providing furniture the Furniture Bank helps its clients establish and remain in safe and stable housing. We provide beds for sleeping, tables for sharing meals and couches for relaxing. The Furniture Bank turns houses into homes.
