The mission of Furnishing Dignity is to transform lives through community, compassion and essential home furnishings.
Since 2014, Furnishing Dignity has filled the gap between helping homeless individuals and families, and foster youth aging from the system, transition from temporary shelter to a new home with new and gently used furniture and household items, including new beds.
The “Dignity” approach is to address basic, fundamental human needs through the provision of furniture and creating a home environment of safety, security, and comfort. This allows individuals and families to concentrate on other pressing issues like securing or maintaining employment, addressing health issues, and enrolling children in school or daycare. As a result, Furnishing Dignity’s program decreases stress on communities, social welfare and healthcare systems.
