Mission Statement

The Houston Furniture Bank’s mission is to furnish hope by Making Empty Houses Homes. With the support of industry partners and the Houston community, we work with over 45 social service partner agencies to provide essential furniture to families in need.

Description

For 26 years, Houston Furniture Bank has been serving families affected by poverty, homelessness, domestic violence, mental and physical health concerns, and disasters. We served over 2,000 families in 2019. Following Hurricane Harvey, Houston Furniture Bank has provided furniture assistance to over 3,500 families affected by the storm. Also in 2019, Houston Furniture Bank launched its "No Kids on the Floor" initiative, working to ensure that no child goes without the rest that is essential to growth and learning by providing bedding to children in need. Houston Furniture Bank is a second chance organization, providing meaningful and gainful employment to over 35 families. We also recycle mattresses in our mattress recycling department. In 2019, Houston Furniture Bank saved 27,644 mattresses from entering the landfill by recycling them.
