Organizations That Help Low Income Families Get Free Furniture?

May 27, 2011

Two wood dressers.I am in need of a new bed, some furniture, and most of all a car. My husband is on SSD and I am going through a lot with my health and am not able to work at this time. Most of our money goes towards rent and electric. We can barely pay that. How can I get a charity to help me get furniture, a bed, and a car?

Ask your church if they can help you or make suggestions. Many groups that help people in a community let churches know they are available. For that matter many people in your church may volunteer for groups that help people. If you don't go to church it may be time to start (but go to one you haven't asked for help from).

There is a web site that is called Freecycle, you can find the groups in your area and join. They post items that they will give away and you can ask for items.

I have fallen on hard times, but am managing. My son and I are in desperate need of mattresses, mine more so. I'm currently sleeping on a 27 year old king size that was in the house when we moved here 5 years ago. My back is in a pit and I am starting to struggle day to day. I have tried loans and credit desperately trying to get some. Does anyone know of any charities or organisations that could help?

You can always place a request on Craigslist or Freecycle for help with this but remember, the pick up and delivery may be up to you to provide no matter who helps you so always be sure of the conditions in the offer.


Cleanliness is a prime concern if you are offered a used/preowned mattress as bedbugs are many times a disaster just waiting to get you.
If you are on any government entitlement programs (medicaid, food stamps) there are agencies that might be able to help you. The Salvation Army, Habitat will also help if they have anything available. A service that is rarely used one from Ashley furniture so if you have one of there stores in your area you should call them and ask about their free bed assistance program.

You may even have a nextdoor neighbor program near you.

Here is a link that has some suggestions:

On Craigslist, under free - you can perhaps see if anyone is giving away mattresses. Preferably they just purchased a new one and getting rid of their own old.


If they can haul to your home that would be nice and maybe give them beer money, or a small tip for their time + gas.

If you are on a budget and can afford a new mattress I would suggest buying an air bed. The mattresses are firm and comfortable. The king size sells for around 60 dollars I believe.

I need a good mattress. A medium firm mattress would need to be fairly cheap. My mattress is way too plush with no springs. I have gained weight due to health reasons and am at the mercy of whatever support that would help. I do not know where to turn. I am a single grandfather, raising one grandchild and am disabled. I would prefer a middle of the road mattress not firm and not completely squishy. Pain rules my life right now and I would like to have less pain in my life.

Are there any organizations that might be able to help? Are there other options that I might try? I would be more than happy to help with the cost, but the prices are outrageous.

I would be forever grateful for help. I am on disability and most of my money goes for paying the bills.

I recently moved into an apartment and it took everything I had in the bank to rent this place. I am in great need of a couch, an indoor recliner bed frame and box spring, kitchen table, and two chairs. I am 100% disabled and I can only work part-time. I'm moving from a camper into an apartment and I have no furniture except for one mattress. I'm at the end of my rope. I don't know what else to do if you can help me I would really appreciate it more than you can know.

I recently lost my dog she was blind and deaf and had puppy Alzheimer's. She walked off a week ago and I have not seen her since. I cry every night because I miss her so much and I'm so afraid to leave here in case she comes back, but I have to do for me what I need to do. I left her in God's hands and pray for her everyday. Thank you so very much and God bless you whether you can help me or not.
