Letter from the Co-Founder
Dear Friends of Dallas Furniture Bank,
We are so pleased about the positive impact Dallas Furniture Bank (DFB) has had on the 17,000 individuals it has served since 2003. One always hears about the vibrancy of Dallas, yet over 20% of our city's population live below the poverty line and 250,000 children sleep on the floor every night. This is why Dallas Furniture Bank must continue to grow and serve more individuals and families in need! We started the agency after recognizing there was a gap in the continuum of services for families and individuals transitioning out of homelessness or otherwise in need of household furniture. Now partnering with over 40 nonprofit agencies, Dallas Furniture Bank not only provides basic household furniture but also furnishes HOPE as well! DFB transforms an empty apartment or house into a new home, providing stability and increasing our clients’ sense of well-being and independence.
We extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who has supported Dallas Furniture Bank over the years. Your contributions and volunteer hours have helped create a vibrant agency. You have helped make our vision and mission possible. And we look forward to assisting even more people to succeed in the future!
