Over 75,000 empty houses turned into homes of hope since 1998
In order to help thousands more families turn their empty houses into homes of hope, the Furniture Bank of Central Ohio has developed a Plan to nearly double the number of families served annually to 6,000 in central Ohio.
The Plan’s Three Capacity Builders
On-site Furniture Warehouse
The expanded 52,000 sq ft furniture warehouse will now be on-site and allow us to serve more local families by increasing our current capacity to collect and distribute essential furniture items for families in need.
The Furnish Our Community PlanAn Innovative and Holistic Solution to Meet the Growing Need
Ultimately, this Plan will build our capacity to provide furniture, stability, and hope for up to 6,000 local families ready to rebuild their homes, lives, and futures – every single year.

We are only $2 million away from our impactful goal of $7.5 million thanks to an influential group of community leaders who stepped up for the sake of our community’s families and future.
About the Furniture Bank of Central Ohio
The mission of the Furniture Bank of Central Ohio is to reduce the impact of poverty by providing furniture to central Ohio families and individuals struggling with severe life challenges. Since 1998, we have turned empty houses into homes of hope for over 75,000 central Ohio families by collaborating with individuals, businesses, social service agencies and faith based organizations. We collect gently used furniture, mattresses and household items from generous donors in the community then give these items to families living in poverty. Families visit the Furniture Bank to select 5-20 pieces of furniture, including beds, dressers, tables, chairs and other household items, then have it delivered the same day.
