Aid families affected by Harvey or receive help yourself during the Houston Furniture Bank’s Post-Harvey Relief Efforts on Tuesdays through Saturdays from 8am to 3pm, while supplies last.

As hundreds of thousands in the Greater Houston region prepare to begin the arduous work of recovering and rebuilding their lives after the devastation left by Hurricane Harvey, the Houston Furniture Bank is preparing to answer the call of an estimated 25,000 to 100,000 impacted families.

That means many will need the most basic of furniture to start rebuilding. During this time of recovery for families, friends, and neighbors, Houston Furniture Bank is answering this critical need for the most basic of home furnishings to make their empty houses homes again.

To help as many families as possible as quickly as possible, the non-profit is suspending their normal agency-referral process and providing furniture to all who need it, while supplies last.
