Dallas Furniture Bank
We furnish hope. Serving Dallas families and individuals since 2003. Providing furniture to families transitioning from homelessness; restoring normalcy and independence.
Dallas Furniture Bank is grateful to receive gently or lightly used basic household furniture items and home furnishing accessories.
DFB is sustained by the generosity of our donors. Your financial contributions greatly impact and improve the quality of life, self-esteem and chance of success for individuals/families in need.
Dallas Furniture Bank’s program fills the missing gap in the continuum of care for transitional homeless and low-income families. Though many of our agency partners provide housing for those in need, the resource of furniture is not provided to approximately 90% of these families. At Dallas Furniture Bank, we believe that living spaces should be filled. Furniture not only fills a house with practical comfort, but also instills a sense of hope and dignity. DFB collects basic household furniture from private households and businesses and stores them in a warehouse for future distribution. Simply put, we coordinate the transfer of unwanted, gently used furniture from people who wish to donate, to those who are desperately in need. Our mission is good for the environment, the economy, and, most importantly, people in need. Working with social service agencies who provide a client referral, Dallas Furniture Bank provides basic furniture to previously homeless families and others in need, resulting in increased chances for self-sufficiency, higher levels of self-esteem, and long-term stability.
Collaboration, a hallmark of the Dallas Furniture Bank (DFB) program, is necessary between DFB and Dallas Metro Area non-profit organizations to better serve the needs of the community.
DFB appreciates the agencies who partner with us to fill our mission of providing furniture to families transitioning from homelessness; restoring normalcy and independence.

"I was in a homeless shelter with my son since he was 3 months old. He is almost 2 years old now. I was finally transitioning out of homeless service and I was going to be able to have my own apartment, but I didn't have any furniture at all (I never have), or money to buy my own furniture ... They gave me a referral for your services ... My bed is wonderful. So is my couch. I LOVE the matching nightstands. I hope more people get the chance ... like me ... I feel like I have a home instead of an empty house. I feel like I made it through the bad ... as I am trying to rebuild my life, I would have an empty house if it wasn't for y'all. When I come home and see my house full of nice furniture that I get to keep, I know I made it. I'm blessed ... I am so thankful! Thank you to everyone who made it possible for me and my son to have such nice furniture. I just don't know what words describe how much I really appreciate being able to have nice furniture."
