Entering its second full year, the Capital Region Furniture Bank is a model agency collaboration in the Capital Region. Bringing together HATAS, Catholic Charities, St. Catherine’s Center for Children and Unity House, our mission is to provide free, basic furnishings for households emerging from homeless shelters and domestic violence.
We are a unique local partnership that brings together multiple human service agencies, including HATAS, to work collaboratively on helping our community. Individuals and families are referred to us by our partners and the referred consumer then comes to the warehouse and shops for items they need.
We always welcome furniture donations as well as volunteer support and our warehouse team travels around the capital district to pick up and deliver our donated furniture.
The Furniture Bank is not possible without the collaborative support and investment from our partners:
The Bank is also supported by private donations. We are grateful to KeyBank and MVP for their support.
If you are interested in supporting us, please call Tom Whalen, HATAS Director of Development, at 518-463-2124 ext 241.
Individuals interested in becoming volunteers should contact our warehouse staff at (518) 612-BANK .
