households furnished by the Philadelphia Furniture Bank for individuals and families moving out of homelessness

We start by housing people directly from the streets, without precondition. Then we address their underlying issues around mental health, addiction, medical care, income, and education to help integrate and welcome them back into our community. We also provide furniture to folks moving out of homelessness from all over the city through our furniture bank.

She introduced herself with a bright smile that reached all the way up to warm eyes, crinkled at the corners. Nervous, she began her story haltingly.
