"The Furniture Bank has been an amazing resource for clients in need of assistance. I utilized this resource several times in 2022 and look forward to another great year in 2023. Thank you for having this available to our community!"

 Kelly Stone, Yamhill County ACT Program


"I learned about this program in my first week working at the Polk County Resource Center.  I went with a co-worker and a family to help gather some household items for a family that recently got a new apartment after leaving a very unsafe situation.  It was wonderful watching the family pick out furniture and other household goods for their new home.  I watched as the mom and the older daughter discussed where to put the furniture items and embrace in a hug as well as some tears of happiness.  This program is wonderful for the community and am so grateful of this support!"

Katrina Reimann, Polk County Family & Community Outreach

"I have taken at least 3 clients to you in the past year (of 2022).  All in desperate need of furniture and kitchen items and all 3 have come out with multiple items that were beneficial to them.  They did not have the resources to buy these items and these items provide them some stability in their daily lives that is very needed.  They and I really REALLY appreciate the service and Pastor John has always  been helpful, friendly, and flexible with his schedule.  People helping people in this way lets those in need know they are not completely alone and that others can care about them. I personally also really appreciate that the items are not going into the landfill but getting used.  “waste not, want not”   Thank you."

Karen Brooks , Community Support Services/Abacus--Yamhill County Health and Human Services

"When our clients left our shelter to move into their new homes, with the help of Share Inc., we were able to provide furniture to our clients who have fled their abusive relationships with nothing but their children and very little clothing. The furniture bank helped them furnish their homes which has helped them heal from the abuse they suffered. Thank you so much." 

Leatha Tweedy, Sexual Assault Advocate--Henderson House

"Thank you so very much for partnering with me again this year to serve Head Start families. The mattresses were delivered to the family, and they were overjoyed. Another community member donated the bed frames, so it was perfect. Mom says, "I am so thankful to be blessed by this generous gift! My girls love their big girl beds!!"

I appreciate you and all you do for our community."

Kristi Starling, Family Support--Newberg Head Start

"The furniture bank was able to help one of our recovery clients get back on her feet with her children and help make their house feel like a home. Thank you!"

Isabell Bobb, Vocational Rehabilitation, Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde


"A mother who had fled domestic violence just got into housing. The furniture bank provided her with all the furniture she needed as well as kitchenware and decor. She was so happy as we all brought the items into her new home that she wept. In addition, her son really came out of his shell that day to help unload and choose items of his very own." 

Megan Parr, Case Manager--Lutheran Community & Family Services Northwest

"This ministry has been such a blessing, providing bedding, furniture, and other items to individuals who are moving from our women's shelter into their very own housing!  We are so grateful!  Thank you!"

 Beth Muthiah - Women's Transitional Living Program, Love INC Newberg

"The first family I referred to the furniture bank had just been approved for an apartment after being homeless for more than two years. With the furniture provided by the furniture bank, They were able to create a home environment in their new place. This allowed them to have their 2 year old daughter returned to their custody from foster care.  Thanks so much for all you do!"

Jessica Harper, Polk County Family & Community Outreach
