Need furniture donation? Access our services.

Furniture Bank supports families and individuals experiencing furniture poverty, including women and children leaving shelters, people transitioning from homelessness, and newcomers and refugees to Canada. Individuals who are in a vulnerable position, including those on a low income or new immigrants to Winnipeg, may be eligible to receive free furniture and other support.

Need free furniture? Here’s what you should know first.

You cannot make an appointment directly with Furniture Bank. You must be referred by one of our agency partners.

If you have a worker from a social service agency, please ask your worker if the organization is a Furniture Bank partner. If it is, your worker will let you know if you are eligible to receive a Furniture Bank referral.

Our community partners

If you are not in a program, see below for a list of agencies you can contact.

We work in partnership with over 23 agencies and shelters to assist marginalized individuals and families who are experiencing furniture poverty. Our partner agencies play a critical role by helping to screen potential furniture recipients. This helps us focus on our commitment to ensuring those who transition out of homelessness and displacement are given the best possible chance to succeed in life.
