The Chicago Furniture Bank is a critical resource to the 450+ nonprofit partners addressing poverty, homelessness, mental illness and veterans services in Chicago. Their program helps to stabilize households when they are beginning a new chapter in their lives. Providing furniture to those leaving shelters is a critical and oftentimes overlooked component in the Housing First Model.This grant supports the growth of the Chicago Furniture Bank resulting from the City of Chicago’s new 2-1-1 program, which will serve hundreds more veterans and individuals suffering a mental health crisis in Chicago and beyond.
