Since 1992, Houston Furniture Bank has provided furniture to more than 80,000 families and individuals in the Greater Houston region, Making Empty Houses Homes. The 501 (c)3 nonprofit organization receives client referrals from more than 75 social service agencies in the Houston and surrounding areas.
Through the Adopt a Family program, supporters of Houston Furniture Bank can make personal contributions towards the independence and stability of their less advantaged community members and neighbors.
These families and individuals are transitioning to independent living while struggling with extreme poverty. Some have become impoverished due to natural disasters, such as floods or fires; for others, their access to independence has been affected by mental challenges, physical disabilities, chemical dependencies, or catastrophic health issues such as AIDS.
While some are victims of natural disasters or domestic violence, still others such as veterans, senior citizens, or single parents, have become unable to gain employment or earn adequate wages to support themselves.
On any given night, it is estimated that approximately 300,000 children in the Houston area either sleep on the floor or share a bed.
