Furniture Bank

The Chattanooga Furniture Bank provides furniture and household items to people transitioning from homelessness, establishing a first-time residence, or relocating due to an emergency situation, abusive surrounding or natural catastrophe. This program is run by Goodwill Industries of Chattanooga in partnership with The United Way of Greater Chattanooga and The City of Chattanooga.  Since opening in 2012, the Furniture Bank has helped more than 12,000 individuals to make a house or apartment a home by providing gently-used furniture at no cost to qualified individuals and families.

The Furniture Bank is fully operational during this time, and observes all Covid-19 safety precautions. We accept furniture items such as dining tables, chairs, dressers, couches, end tables, dishware and other basic necessities. Solid-wood items such as dining tables, dressers, and shelves that need minor repairs are accepted and repaired by our skilled volunteers. Monetary donations are also appreciated.
