Our focus is to be a complement of an existing and organized effort to assist those whose living situation lacks even the most meager of furnishings. With our mission of “Making Empty Houses Homes”, we are creating an environment where children don’t have to sleep on the floor; where families can sit at a table together for their meals; where everyday items can have a place other than in a box – a place where the dignity and self-esteem of independent living can thrive.
– Oli Mohammed: Executive Director and Founder
Make a Donation
Houston Furniture Bank, a non profit that provides furniture to qualified recipients of 85 charities along the gulf coast, is temporarily out of business after a 2-alarm fire on Saturday, August 8 leveled our warehouse headquarters located at 2100 Hussion Street in east Houston. Houston Fire Department is continuing an investigation into the cause.
We lost absolutely everything from our inventory and fleet of trucks to computers, phone system, even cell phones. We have nothing and it is completely overwhelming.
Houston Furniture Bank is requesting financial donations to assist our effort to fund new warehouse space and purchase trucks, electronic equipment and office supplies so we can begin accepting donated furniture again that will then be provided to the recipients of our 85 partner agencies.
SEE BELOW FOR CASH AND CREDIT/DEBIT CARD DONATIONS. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO DONATE BY CHECK, PLEASE MAKE IT OUT TO THE FURNITURE BANK AND MAIL IT TO 3801 GULF FREEWAY HOUSTON, TX 77003. ALL DONATIONS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE.
Houstonians wishing to help can also purchase gently used and retail overstock furniture from the Houston Furniture Bank Outlet Center located at 3801 Gulf Freeway, one block north of Cullen Blvd. at I-45, 77003.
Thank you for your kind support. We look forward to getting our employees back to work and to helping the families who need furniture to make their house a home.
Hal Lynde, HFB Board Chairman
