What makes a house feel like home? A roof over our heads, running water, food…but what about furniture? Without a dresser, where do we store clothes? Without a table and chairs, where do we eat? Without a bed, where do our children sleep? For many individuals and families in Albany, furniture poverty is a reality. As a nonprofit and as community members ourselves, we have a solution.
Founded in 2016, the Capital Region Furniture Bank accepts donations of furniture from community members who are downsizing and offers these goods to individuals and families transitioning from homeless shelters to permanent housing. Through our network of human service agencies, we identify which families can benefit most from our donated goods.
Our donations process involves three easy steps:
1. You can call our office or complete our online form to determine which furnishings we accept.
2. We follow up to provide a price quote and choose a date for furniture pickup.
3. Moving day! We pick up your furniture and deliver it to those in need.
Please note, you may drop-off of furniture at our warehouse in Albany, NY for free.
*Please note, we do not accept sleeper sofas.
Thank you for helping me connect to the Furniture Bank. The whole process was efficient, easy, and your team was outstanding. Arranging the pickup (which was so last minute on my end) was easy and your team kept me in the loop at all the points along the way. The two gentlemen who picked up the mattress were so courteous and kind and professional. Please send my deepest thanks to all these team members.
