Make a Difference

The Veterans Furniture Center (VFC) is a volunteer based, veteran managed, 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides new furniture and household goods free of charge to veterans transitioning from homelessness to subsidized housing. It has been shown that having furniture and basic household goods can make a significant difference in helping formerly homeless veterans stay sober and in keeping them off the streets.

Program Highlights

  • For only $900 per veteran we can supply a complete kit as shown below.
  • 100% of your contribution will go to purchasing furniture and household goods for needy veterans.
  • The kit includes all of the furniture and household goods necessary for a typical 1-3 room apartment, which will start these deserving veterans back on a path to becoming functional, self-supporting members of society.
  • The recipients are all formerly homeless veterans transitioning into permanent housing, referred to us by the Veterans Administration or one of our social services partners.
  • Your support can often mean the difference between a successful transition and a return to the streets.

Notes

2.Content of each veteran's kit depends on need. (example, family may need more than one bed, or veteran may already have a bed.)
