New Life Furniture is an amazing resource for us. The staff of NLF has helped many of our families turn a couple bare rooms into a home. The difference having a home makes for someone trying to build/rebuild a life is difficult to put into words. It provides a sense of safety, comfort, esteem, belonging, care, empowerment. NLF has made a huge difference to so many! The NLF staff is caring and responsive. I believe they truly act from their hearts--this is a calling for them.

It is difficult to accept that in the United States there would be children whose dresser is a pair of paper grocery bags on the floor or a 55 year old woman with chronic health problems would be living in an apartment furnished only with a milk crate table, an air mattress to sleep on, a television on the floor that recieves two stations and a single molded plastic chair to sit on.

New Life Furniture's clients carry front door keys just like you and I do. They look quite unremarkable when passed on the sidewalk but their impoverishment leaves them with dreary, demeaning existences once they walk in the door of their apartment. NLF workers deliver the goods of this unique service with compassion and expressed respect for the people they serve. They leave them feeling respected, encouraged and better able to manage their other life challenges.

I work at a homeless shelter and when families come into shelter in many cases they have lost everything. They have no bed to sleep in, no table to eat at, no dresser for their clothes.

This is where NLF steps up and gives these families a new sense of hope. Within in a few days of receiving the referral the children has beds to sleep in they can sit around the table and eat as a family, and they can even sit down on their couch and watch a movie on their TV. All this is made possible by a wonderful group of people that had a question then an ideal " What can we do to help?" that has been some years ago and they continue to do so much with so little but always do it with a smile.
I am so grateful for NL without them some people may still not have a bed to sleep in or a table to sit at and feel as all hope is gone what a sad thought. Thank you for helping people feel as if they are
going home and not to a place with just empty rooms. Thanks Eve

I have witnessed the wonderful work the ministry does. A young woman I was working with received a house full of furniture after having been homeless. She and her children were so thrilled and appreciative for everything. New Life Furniture changes lives.
