Charity that takes furniture

DSC 0020A bed, a table, a chair, a sofa – these items make a house a home. Yet, for thousands of extremely low-income households, these elements are completely unaffordable.

Since its inception in 1985 as one of the first furniture banks in the nation, the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless has assisted in furnishing the future of thousands of households who are transitioning out of homelessness into permanent housing. The approach is simple - take other people’s castaway furniture and household goods and give them new life in the home of someone in need.

The Furniture Bank seeks donations of couches, chairs, tables, bed frames, and other household essentials; picks them up at no charge to the donor; and distributes them free of cost to those in need. The Coalition’s Furniture Bank is one of the largest programs of its kind in the nation and in Massachusetts. The program operates from our warehouse 20 minutes outside of Boston. DSC 0036 Over .5 million dollars worth of furniture and household goods are collected annually and distributed to thousands of households making the transition out of homelessness.
* Due to the Coalition's recent move to a new location in Lynn, we are unable to accept new donations or set up more appointments for the furniture bank at this time. Thank you for your interest and generosity. We will update this page when additional information is available. Follow this link for listings of . *
