Go to the Salvation Army in your area. First you will have to go their office and ask for a voucher for furniture, I think you have to specify exactly what you need. Then when you get the voucher take it to their thrift store and if they have the items you need, you can obtain them. Most of the time you won't get to pick from the better items that they have, they will have you select from the lesser quality ones. You also won't get anything of the electronic type. Most of the time they will have you transport the items too.

Goodwill warehouses have some selection sometimes and are very inexpensive. The items are not always in the best of shape, but some furniture polish and elbow grease will help.

I have seen some great things and also some real junk. The Goodwill warehouses are not the same of the stores and sell furniture by the item, but most items are by the pound with half price on the first Saturday of the month.

Go to freecycle.org and find list near you: http://www.freecycle.org/

You can post that you are looking for free furniture, or just watch the offerings for a couple weeks. You certainly see some decent furniture posted if you have an active freecycle list in your area. Just be ready to go pick up what you claim quickly. If you don't respond quickly, you'll likely miss out on good items.

I know bigger churches, Salvation Army and some Am Vet places give vouchers. You have to contact the office, not in the store. This is where you volunteer usually is where the main offices are. Calling 211 may have numbers, addresses for you. If you have a large privately owned furniture store in your area, you can write a letter stating your needs, with furniture that has been on the floor, scratched etc.

sometimes they work with a charity who does just what you are in need of. My friend who has a Ministry worked with a couple stores. Also check Catholic Charities I know they try to help. God bless you!

Try craigslist.com or see if you have a freecycle.com in your area. Good luck

It's easier said than done. Try the Salvation Army.
