More than 500,000 Americans are still homeless on any given night, with scarce resources to utilize once they get their first transitional housing
Millions more live in over-crowded temporary housing
The elderly, with many on subsistence support, are some of the hardest hit
Children and families represent the fastest growing segment of our homeless population
When our families are at last offered affordable housing, a harsh reality confronts them – their house is empty. Without beds, dressers, living room furniture, kitchen tables and chairs as well as other basic furniture, their house is not home. Unfortunately, once rent and utilities are paid and food and childcare provided, there is little left for these furnishings. A family’s confidence and hope for success are dealt a serious blow as they lie down on a cold, hard floor. Consider the everyday luxuries that most of us take for granted, but which make our lives much easier. A soft, clean bed to sleep in, refreshing us for work in the morning… an inviting desk that encourages our kids to succeed in school… a kitchen table offering a cozy place for our families to gather and communicate. These are the essential items that The Furniture Co-Op works to provide to all families in the Greater New Haven area. These families simply do not have the resources to buy furniture during their transition, no matter what the cost.
