Veterans Furniture Center
Home FurnishingsMilitary & VeteransNon-Profit
Established in 2009, the Veterans Furniture Center (VFC) plays an indispensable role in supporting the VA and its social service partners in the battle against veteran homelessness. While the VA does an outstanding job transitioning homeless veterans into subsidized housing, providing them safe shelter, it lacks the authority and budget to provide furniture or necessary household goods. By providing free furniture and household goods, we fill that “critical gap.” When we deliver furniture and household goods, we turn that shelter into a home.
Disadvantaged Veterans in need are referred to us by the VA and other social service agencies. We often find them living in empty apartments without beds, kitchenware, or other necessary items. Some have families, but most are alone. They range in age from their early twenties to the late seventies and have served honorably in all our nation’s conflicts, including, Iraq, Afghanistan, Viet Nam, and Korea.
Our social service partners tell us that by simply providing basic furniture and essential household goods, the VFC contributes significantly to helping formerly homeless veterans stay sober and off the streets.
Since 2009 the VFC has provided furniture to over 2,400 veterans and is currently serving over 400 veterans a year. Our schedule is both relentless and disciplined, delivering furniture every single week, all year long, often including holidays.
