Niagara Furniture Bank collects gently used housewares and furniture in order to provide individuals and families within the Niagara Region with beds, tables, chairs and other housewares.

The members of your community that receive these items are referred by organizations like: Ontario Works, Ontario Disability Support Programs, Canadian Mental Health Association, Public Health, Family and Children’s Services, YWCA – Shelters and Transitional Housing, Hope Centre, Port Cares, Community Cares and other local referral partners.

Since becoming a Canadian Registered Charity on January 1, 2008, the Niagara Furniture Bank has been helping families and continues to grow within the Niagara Region. In 2009 when we got our first truck, we served 43 families and individuals. In 2019, our directors and trustees took great pride announcing we assisted 704 families and individuals with housewares needed to make a safe home environment. The Niagara Furniture Bank collected and repurposed almost 500,000 pounds of gently used furniture and housewares items. Items that would have otherwise ended up in our precious landfills. 2019 saw $668,000.00 in Official Canadian Charitable Tax Receipts (CTR's) created for the full fair market value (FMV's) of every item received from community donations.

Executive Summary

Niagara Furniture Bank uses a social enterprise approach to improve clients’ housing quality and stability. Niagara Furniture Bank (NFB) collects gently used furniture from private homes and businesses for a fee, and then delivers the furnishings to individuals and families who can access housing but cannot afford to furnish their homes.

In 2019 the NFB was able to assist 704 families and individuals improve their housing quality. During the NFB processes we are able to repurpose over 450,000 pounds of housewares that would end up in landfills.

The organization is based on the notion that a “shelter” is not a “home” without furnishings. The NFB operates on minimal fees charged to donors for removal, referral agents for delivery and monetary donations from various organizations. This allows the business costs to be covered while delivering quality housewares to those financially unable to support themselves.
