What you can do and have done to help the Community Warehouse!

Message from Roz Babener
Board President- The Community Warehouse

Dear Friends,

In 2009, the Community Warehouse, with your support, helped more than 10,000 of our neighbors live in dignity in their own home. As the only "furniture bank" in the Portland metro area, Community Warehouse is a resource for over 100 social service agencies working to support at risk individuals and families providing a missing piece - the essential household furnishings to help people gain the stability and confidence that will help them move forward with their lives and the lives of their children.

Your generosity cannot be truly appreciated without hearing about a few of those we helped together:
-  A mom and her 2 young children escaping an abuser in another state - now have a furnished apartment and a chance to start over.
-  A family with 3 children who lost their home when the father lost his job. They have been living in their car for months. With a stable home, the children can go to school and the parents can look for work.
-  A homeless vet can be discharged from the hospital because now he has a place to go.

The idea is simple. Household furnishings that you no longer need are a piece of what has made a difference for these families. Thank you for your part in making the Warehouse available in our community.
