About Furniture Bank:

Since 1998, Furniture Bank has been matching unwanted furniture and homewares to individuals and families seeking to create a new home, transitioning out of homelessness or other forms of displacement.

While Furniture Bank clients may have secured affordable housing, these families lack the assets to transform their new housing into a home.

Joining Social Value Canada is a big milestone in Furniture Bank's journey to clearly demonstrate both our social and environmental impacts to Canada! More importantly, joining this community will support improved program decision making, guide future improvements, and communicate clearly with external stakeholder groups

- Dan Kershaw, Executive Director, Furniture Bank
