Donate Furniture & Volunteer at New Life Furniture Bank
Everyone deserves to sleep in a bed and eat at a table rather than on the floor.
BEDS FOR SLEEPYHEADS
The last thing a child should have to think about is where they are going to sleep.
New Life Furniture Bank is the area’s only regional “furniture bank” collecting donations of gently used beds and home furnishings and delivering them directly to families in need in Greater Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky, and Dayton, OH. Last year we distributed nearly 1900 beds and this year the goal is to provide over 2000 beds to help get children off the floor.
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, and Dayton. We deliver and set-up an entire household of furnishings to families overcoming homelessness, domestic abuse, extreme poverty, and other devastating circumstances.
Additionally, 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.
Mostly, 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.
New Life Furniture Thrift Store is Now Open
Shop at our new thrift store, located in Sharonville Plaza! We offer an array of gently used home furnishings, home decor clothing, jewelry and accessories at affordable prices.
When you make a purchase, proceeds support New Life Furniture Bank, so we can expand our mission and help our neighbors who are starting over from homelessness and other devastating circumstances.
New Life Furniture Thrift Store is located in Sharonville Plaza right next to Gabe’s.
