To help vulnerable neighbors become self-sufficient by providing them with essential household furnishings. Through partnerships with 200 social service agencies, Community Warehouse helps families and individuals recovering from homelessness, domestic violence, substance abuse, or other life-altering events to create a strong foundation at home.
Bottom Line for Portland
Last year, Community Warehouse redistributed 550 tons of furnishings to 7,080 neighbors in need. It provides an important resource for many agencies represented in Give!Guide. Diverting usable items from the waste stream into the homes of families in need impacts housing stability, food security, and the health and happiness of the community overall.
“You are doing such an amazing, wonderful thing. I lost everything I treasured twice in my life, and it took years to get things back. It’s a comfort to know there are such thoughtful, caring people in this world.” —Client served in 2016
