Imagine your child going to sleep at night on the floor. Imagine waking them up for school every morning, knowing that tonight your family won’t have any beds to sleep on again. It would be heartbreaking!
But for thousands of families in the Houston are this is their reality every single day, and night.
This holiday season you can give the gift of hope to a family in need. You can provide a bed for a child to sleep on. You can choose to make a difference right now. Here are a few ways you can get involved today:
Make a donation
With our mission of “Making Empty Houses Homes,” Houston Furniture Bank is working to create an environment where children don’t have to sleep on the floor, where families can sit at a table together for their meals, and where the dignity and self-esteem of independent living can thrive. Just $250 will provide a child with a new mattress, foundation and bed frame. A gift of any amount is most welcome. To make a donation, please visit houstonfurniturebank.org/get-involved/donate-money/.
Shop at Furniture Outlet at Houston Furniture Bank
The Furniture Outlet at Houston Furniture Bank offers high-quality furniture to the public at discount prices. It was developed to supplement funding initiatives for Houston Furniture Bank through the resale of donated items. These items, both new and gently used, are donated by major furniture companies and members of the Hotel & Lodging Association, as well as other local businesses and individuals. All proceeds from purchases benefit Houston Furniture Bank programs and services. For additional information, please visit houstonfurniturebank.org/programs-and-services/outlet-center/.

Give your gently-used household goods and furniture a new purpose by donating them to the Houston Furniture Bank. These items may have a second (or third) life by furnishing a new home. If would like to donate, please send a picture of the items you wish to donate to firstname.lastname@example.org and call (713) 842-9771 to schedule a pick up.
