I was in a Night Mare Niagara Furniture Bank Helped Me.

Me and husband started having problems when I questioned him about some unusual transactions on our bank account. He had been a bit suspicious for a couple of weeks . So i had to question him and he broke . He had been cheating on me behind my back. It wasn't smooth ever since every single time i had questioned it he would hit me. I had to adjust because I didn't have anywhere else to go. He knew it too that's why he kept on abusing me. But when he started laying his hands on my kids i deiced to get out.

At first I didn't knew what to do . I was at my friends house at first. She helped me get in touch with Gillian's place in St Catharines. They took me in and gave me a place to stay . They helped me with my Ontario works process. Ontario works was able to get me some financial assistance. So with the help of everyone I was able find a house for me and my kids.

When I needed furniture I had no option to pay for it . So I asked everyone if I could get some mattresses for free. nobody had any good ones. But that's when Gillian's Place suggested Niagara Furniture Bank. So when I contacted Ontario works and requested them about it my case worker told me that i was able to get mattresses for free. They would take care of the cost.

" We Rise By Lifting others "

I contacted Niagara Furniture Bank for my furniture request.  All I had to do was full out the application form and all my furniture where delivered to me within a week. They were really nice about the whole process. It was really easy too . Niagara Furniture Bank gave me more what I had requested for . They brought me enough for more than what I had requested for. They brought me a mattress and study table and a whole lot of things. Thanks to them I am able to sleep peacefully and focus on college.
