ShareCorps -Furniture Bank- Communication & Development
The Furniture Bank of Central Ohio is a unique and collaborative organization that provides furniture to central Ohio families and individuals in poverty and struggling with severe life challenges so that they can improve their lives. It started twenty years ago with one man with a truck in a church basement and has grown to serving an average of 3,900 families a year. The Furniture Bank picks up gently used furniture, mattresses and household items then works with dozens of nonprofits, churches and social service agencies to help families living in poverty. Families visit the Furniture Bank to pick out 10 to 20 pieces of furniture- beds, dressers, tables, chairs and other household items at our one-stop shop warehouse, then have their furniture delivered the same day. The Furniture Bank of Central Ohio is one of the largest furniture banks in the country, and works with 9,000 donors, 2,000 volunteers, 3,900 client families and more than 100 referring agencies each year. The Furniture Bank of Central Ohio operates two social enterprises- the Furniture with a Heart thrift store and Downsize with a Heart, a downsizing and moving business.
