How can I get furniture for supportive housing?

Postby Adam » Mon May 21, 2018 3:24 pm

I'm a part of the connection Inc. supportive housing and getting full custody of my oldest son and have no income was recently homeless. I have an apartment now. It is 2 bedroom through connection Inc. supportive housing.
The place needs dressers, living room set and a few other things for help. I have a bed in my room and one in my son's.
Everything else is needed it's really a struggle. I'm job searching now haven't had any luck with a job yet but I can get a referral if needed. I don't even have a cell phone I could receive calls on as of now I'm using a Wi-Fi app waiting for a state phone.

There are free furniture banks to apply at. Or try a low cost thrift store from say the Salvation Army. Many churches also give furniture, household supplies, etc.

Good afternoon,
I am a P.C.A. working for a disabled women. She is currently living in an apartment but is unable to be her rent or get furniture. She is currently in a program (Supportive Living Environment) that just raised her rent $100. She was paying $300 a month. In March the program she is in told her she has to pay $400 now. She is on a fixes income of $1000 dollars a month from SSDI. This is now more than 30% of her income. On top of that the rent was raised $25. The total rent is now $825.
Is there any programs that she can apply for to help her pay the rent or free furniture? She is not currently being evicted yet.
Please contact me as soon as possible. Thank you

Maybe, since she is in a supportive apartment and the disabled woman's income is so low. She can try a thrift store for free furniture vouchers. For the working poor, who have a very low income, they may be able to help her. Free furniture, appliances, and other items are offered.

My daughter and her two month old baby removed herself from an abusive situation. She didn't want her baby girl to grow up in the same circle she has been in for so many years. Although she has attempted to leave many times, once the anger turned towards the infant, she knew she had to leave. We found her a great two bedroom supportive housing in the small town of Oakland. It’s walking distance to shopping center, laundry centers, family style restaurants and the public family beach. She is so excited and I know she is going to succeed. The one thing she doesn't have is furniture. She took ALL the baby furniture but nothing for herself. I am wondering if you have anything that she can have for free or for a very small amount in the transitional supported home. She needs a bedroom set, kitchen set and some living room furniture. She is only looking for a twin or double bed. The bedroom is very small. And she doesn't have a bureau. Is there any help she can get?

Oakland CA or Oakland MI? If Michigan, then try this for free furniture in Oakland County MI. There are items for babies, children, clothes, and other forms of assistance. Good for your daughter as well for getting herself and finding the courage to get out of an abusive situation.
