ABOUT THE FURNITURE BANK OF METRO ATLANTA:
The Furniture Bank of Metro Atlanta a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization was founded in 1988 in response to the lack of furniture for families moving out of homeless shelters. Today the Furniture Bank recycles gently-used furniture by collecting it from the community and giving it to individuals and families moving out of homelessness and fleeing domestic violence as well as countless others struggling to make ends meet. The Furniture Bank provides beds for sleeping tables for sharing meals and couches for relaxing. In short we turn houses into homes!
