Everyone deserves to sleep in a bed and eat at a table rather than on the floor.

Donate Furniture & Volunteer at New Life Furniture Bank

What’s a Furniture Bank?

New Life Furniture Bank (NLFB) is Southwest Ohio’s only furniture bank collecting gently used furniture and household items to provide to those in need throughout Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.  We deliver and set-up an entire household of furnishings to families overcoming homelessness, domestic abuse, extreme poverty, and other devastating circumstances. We recognize that a home requires more than just four walls.  A home requires essential furnishings such as beds to sleep on, a table & chairs to eat at, a sofa to gather, and other basic household items to transform empty spaces into livable homes.

The Mission

We believe in the healing power of giving and receiving to empower communities to come together and support our most vulnerable populations. Having a furnished home restores dignity, brings pride of ownership, adds confidence, and allows families to stabilize while working toward self-sufficiency.

The Charles H. Dater Foundation awarded New Life Furniture Bank with a $35,000 grant!

The Charles H. Dater Foundation awards a $35,000 grant to New Life Furniture Bank in support of our recent Sleepyhead fundraising campaign. We’re honored to once again partner with the Dater Foundation to provide safe beds for children. Since January 2022, New Life Furniture Bank has delivered over 582 beds to our neighbors in need, helping to get children off the floor and into a warm safe bed. Established in 1985, The Charles H. Dater Foundation has been helping fund non-profit organizations in the Greater Cincinnati area carry out projects that benefit young people. The Foundation focuses in the areas of arts/culture, education, healthcare, social services and other community needs. To learn more about The Charles H. Dater Foundation please visit their website at www.daterfoundation.org.
