Catholic Charities Furniture Assistance

Share and Help Others...


Everyone who has a place to live needs furniture.

The problem is that it can be costly at times. And with the rising costs of production after the pandemic we just experienced, they can be very hard to get for many Americans.

Most newly purchased furniture is expensive.

Even some used furniture can be expensive, and it can be difficult to come by what it is that you are in need of to begin with.

Many people turn to Catholic Charities furniture assistance to get the help they need with obtaining household items.


Catholic Charities furniture assistance programs will provide people with common household items that they are in need.

They typically do not charge for the items.

They simply give them to the people who are in need or are experiencing financial difficulties, or to put in simple words, don’t have enough extra money to buy their own furniture.

Some of the furniture assistance you may be able to get from Catholic Charities includes items such as:


  • Couches
  • Chairs
  • Televisions
  • Bookshelves
  • Tables
  • Lamps
  • Beds
  • Dressers
  • Desks


Catholic Charities furniture assistance programs are made possible by people donating the items they no longer need.

This allows the charity to then take those items and give them to someone who happens to need that item.

Not only does it save money and help people who need furniture assistance, but it is also better for the environment.

It helps to keep these items from going to a landfill. Rather than put the items out to the road for trash, people have somewhere to give them to, allowing them to be used longer.


How to Get Catholic Charities Furniture Assistance


If you need some furniture for your home you can typically get it for free by reaching out to Catholic Charities.

Furniture assistance is one of many services they provide to the public.

They also offer free food, housing assistance, and a variety of other charitable programs. To get furniture assistance, contact your local Catholic Charities. Let them know what it is that you need and see if they can get it for you.


If they are not able to locate the type of furniture you need, they may able to refer you to others in your area that can help locate those items.

The organization has over 3,000 locations around the country, so there is a good chance they have one close to you.

The items in there are usually donated by members of the congregation.

If you have one like this in your community, reach out to them for help. They typically charge a low price for these, but in some cases, if you are in need, they will give it away for free.

If they have the items there they may give you the furniture assistance then.

If they do not have something in stock at the time that you are asking for it, they may let the congregation know that someone in the community is in need of a particular type of furniture.

This will prompt people to donate it to you.
