Reviews for New Life Furniture

Rating: 5 stars  

A great furniture bank service to get people back up on their feet. Recipients get a home's worth of furniture, catered to their family size, a welcome basket of items, and kitchenware. The organization both delivers and picks up donated items. A great place to send your furnishings when you are moving, downsizing, or redecorating -- all will be put to great use.

New Life Furniture has been a fabulous resource for those families in our area who are working to get back on their feet! Several times I have called for them to pick up furniture from my house and I live on the other side of town. The men have always been courteous and timely. I recommend this non-profit to anyone I know that might have furniture to donate to such a worthy cause!

New Life Furniture! What an incredible organization started and run by incredible people! What they provide to those they serve is much more than physical but they lift the spirits to places these people have not experienced in quite a while. What a blessing to have New Life Furniture in our area!

New Life Furniture is doing great work to serve a very vulnerable community - those folks who have been homeless and who have been working to get out of homelessness. By providing gently used furniture and housewares with love and respect, NLF plays a role (alongside other agencies) in moving veterans, families, mome with children, etc. off the street and into a comfortable home. Holly and her staff have such passion and love for those in need.

I first began to serve with NLF as a volunteer, and was impressed by how much they achieve with such a small staff and limited funding. I now am privileged to serve on the board of this great non-profit.

It is a pleasure to serve with the great people at New Life Furniture. They have such a big heart for the people they serve. I love helping the staff so they can do even more great work. They serve so many people on a very limited budget, and treat everyone with kindness and respect. They save so much furniture from going into landfills or being wasted. Love this group!

Would you volunteer for this group again?

The director, Holly, and the small (but mighty!) staff has a passion for helping others. The furniture supplied by New Life Furniture is God sent for the people who receive it. The furniture provides not only something physical for their new living space, but fills an emotional and psychological need by providing a secure place to sleep and a table for the family to gather. This is a great organization meeting a huge need in the Cincinnati area, and I am grateful to be a part of it.

I have supported NLF since it started, and love how the team shows such appreciation for all donations, large and small. I am also impressed by how fast they circulate through donations. This reiterates how great the need is in our community and how this organization is able to help so many so quickly. I will continue to promote this organization and the terrific work they do.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Nothing! This is one of the best run organizations I have seen.

New Life Furniture is Greater Cincinnati's only free furniture bank. To understand the significance, remove all of your furniture - no mattresses, sofas, tables, chairs, or lamps - and try to live that way for a day, a week, a month, or longer. New Life Furniture's small staff and many volunteers work tirelessly day after day to make sure entire families do not have to live like that. They are the only agency addressing this critical basic need by collecting donations of gently used furniture and delivering and setting up 13-18 items to families trying desperately to escape homelessness, domestic abuse, fires, floods, and other significant challenges.

I was contacted by New Life Furniture because they had a surplus of furniture and not enough room for storage and wanted to pass along the surplus. I am part of a team that works with a non-profit ministry in Appalachia. We take donations of furniture, clothing and household items down once a month. When we arrived to pick-up the donations and found that New Life had already pulled the furniture for us, had volunteers to help load and filled our 18' trailer in about 45 minutes! The staff was very friendly and interested in learning more about the ministry we work with. They even added some personal care items after learning more about the ministry. We were very impressed with the work they are doing, the incredible organization of the facility, and the energy and caring of the staff.

Love what NLF does and how people are helped and shown Love. New Life Furniture has found a way to bring everyday, basic items to people who have nothing and letting them know they have value. It also makes volunteers realize on a daily basis how much we have to be thankful for!

I have been involved with New Life Furniture at one level or another for the past seven years... from volunteering to now serving on their board of directors... It is an amazing organization reaching out to help families in our community who are in urgent need. When you walk into someone's home and realize that they don't have one piece of furniture - not a couch, not a kitchen table, not even a bed - you realize how very needed this organization is. I am honored to be a part of New Life Furniture!

New Life Furniture is such an amazing organization. Being able to donate items that will help someone get established or re established is such an awesome feeling. The NLF crew is wonderful and a pleasure to have in our home. Thank you for making it possible to share in your loving experience to help others.
