Turn an empty house into a home

Request a pick-up

The Furniture Bank of Central Ohio provides furniture to individuals and families in need due to poverty or other severe life challenges.

Our goal is for all central Ohio families to live in furnished homes strengthening family units, improving quality of life, and building a better community.

We operate two social enterprises, Furniture with a Heart thrift store and Downsize with a Heart downsizing and moving service, to help further the mission of turning empty houses into homes.

How can you help?


Gently used furniture should not go to the landfill. We believe that gently used furniture has a #FurnishedPurpose to turn empty houses into homes. Learn more
