Hi I’m Walter . I live in St Catharine. When I realized that my furniture request from Niagara Furniture Bank was approved I cried. I had been sleeping on my floor just on my blanket for weeks now. Sleeping on the ground has caused further injury to my hips and joints. Which had prevented me from going to work for the past couple of months. The mattresses and other furniture  that they provided were truly very comfortable. That was a luxury that I thought I would never be able to afford in my life. I’m still adjusting to the new comfort that I am enjoying in my life. And understanding that thankfully I’m not in survival mode. When I reached out to YMCA for help they recommended Niagara Furniture Bank for me.

I really thank god now that I have a bed to sleep on and I will have a dresser to keep my cloths in rather than just throwing them on the floor. They really helped in get up in life at the worst possible moment. I hope that more of these services may be provided for those in need because I was one of those people who was on the brink of being on the streets.

Our Offices are Temporary Closed

For immediate Release – June 7, 2022

Dear Community, Staff, Partners, Donors and Friends,

Niagara Furniture Bank has been an integral part of the community since 2008, we have seen our fair share of ups and downs and have always persevered. The goal of this organization has always been to serve those in need as no one ever deserves to sleep on the floor. Due to the Pandemic, unforeseen circumstances and financial hardship the Niagara Furniture Bank has had to make the hard decision to temporarily close as of May 13, 2022. This decision did not come lightly and we weighed all options prior to closure. Efforts are ongoing to explore the feasibility to continue supporting our community.

We ask for patience, understanding and empathy during this time.

Sincerely,
Niagara Furniture Bank
