On a sunny June day, Yonnette came into the Philadelphia Furniture Bank. The Philadelphia Furniture Bank, a project of Pathways to Housing PA, provides furniture for individuals and families moving out of homelessness. Most clients that come into the furniture bank live in homes without couches, beds, tables, and even lights. Yonnette was one of thsoe individuals.
"Do you have any kids?" we asked.
"Yes, I have two boys, ages 9 and 10. I also have two twins on the way!" she said with glee.
"Wonderful. Do you have any furniture in your house?"
