Challenge

Community Warehouse collects and redistributes donated household furnishings to low-income people in need. Our clients are recovering from crises such as homelessness, disability, domestic violence, substance abuse, or natural disaster, and many are working poor families or seniors on fixed incomes. All are working to stabilize their lives and establish self-reliance, but cannot afford to purchase essential household items. The number one requested item is a bed for a child.

Solution

The mission of Community Warehouse is to help vulnerable populations improve the quality of their lives and become self-sufficient by providing them with basic household furnishings. We collect gently used donated furniture and household items and work in partnership with over 100 local social services agencies to distribute these basic necessities for creating a home and stabilizing lives to individuals and families in need. We value sustainability, transparency, preserving the dignity of everyone we work with, and providing services in a timely and cost effective manner. We serve over 8,000 families every year.
Hundreds of children in Portland are sleeping on the floor each night for lack of a bed. Beds for Kids ensures that low-income children have a mattress, box spring, pillow, sheets, and blankets to call their own.

Long-Term Impact

As the only furniture bank in the Portland metro area, we provide a critical resource for struggling families, case managers, and community members supporting sustainable reuse. This project fills the critical need of providing individuals and families recovering from crises with basic items to have a functional living space, create stability in their lives, and establish self-reliance.
