Did you know that in the year following Hurricane Harvey Houston Furniture Bank has provided assistance to more than 2,000 Houston-area families? Our efforts have been made possible by donations from businesses, foundations, families & individuals. We’d like to thank The George & Fay Young Foundation for supporting our services with a $75,000 grant that made it possible to provide furniture to another 75 families, helping to ensure that no child has to eat or sleep on the floor.
Although it’s been a year since the storm, many families are still struggling to recover from this devastating event and additional recovery efforts are needed.
“Houston Furniture Bank is committed to helping affected families for as long as we are able,” said Oli Mohammed, Houston Furniture Bank president and CEO. “We believe that furniture is an essential component of quality of life. As long as we have furniture to give, we’ll continue to help our neighbors in need.”
