New Life has always been very grateful for the donations I have had for them. The men are respectful and thankful to have my furniture. I am always glad to see some of the things that they have received and how they have helped those in need set up a permanent, safe home.

I think New Life Furniture is a wonderful organization. We have served there several times this year with my child's Girl Scout group as well with another school group. The organization has such a wonderful grass roots feel and the families and people that NLF serves makes a huge difference. Having an apartment furnished after getting out of a tough situation is priceless! This is such a wonderful non profit and I love that it is just down the street from me and so easy to volunteer!

New Life Furniture is a definite asset to this community, especially those who are under financial pressures. From everything I've seen, NLF is an excellent steward of the items donated to them. The gentlemen picking up our furniture have consistently been polite, appropriately conversational, worked efficiently, and appeared to be very appreciative of the donations and of the opportunity to work for NLF.
They always offer a detailed receipt, which we appreciate for tax purposes. We always choose to give what items we can to NLF for these reasons. Keep up the good work!

NLF is always our first choice when we have furniture to donate. The staff and volunteers are professional, godly, caring and kind people with a heart to serve. They are helping everyday to provide for emotional and physical needs of people, representing what we are called to do to aid our fellow brothers and sisters.

I began donating to New Life Furnitue a few years ago. They have always been so appreciative of everything I have given to them. I spoke so highly of NLF that my family now sends donations to them as well. The help NLF provides for so many less fortunate is a wonderful blessing. I wish NLF nothing but the best, and pray they continue to grow and serve the community for many more years.

God bless you all for the work that you do!

We get stuff to donate to New Life Furniture frequently and their attitude is so excited about taking the stuff directly to someone who is in need. You can tell they love what they do and are making a huge difference in people's lives. It is a great feeling to donate to their cause.
My company donates to a lot of non profits and this is one of my favorites......I tell customers and friends to call them all of the time.

I visited New Life Furniture in July 2013 during a trip from Eastern Pennsylvania with my dad and I found it to be quite simply fantastic! Sometimes, at certain charities, you feel that their volunteers don't necessarily want to be there. Or don't sustain a certain level of love and care. But the people at New Life Furniture won't hesitant to provide both the physical and emotional needs of their community. Their warehouse is incredibly organized as is their daily management of deliveries. And their love is relentless. Many lives have been and will be changed because of this non-profit.

It is so amazing to see how much growth New Life Furniture has experienced since i first volunteered three years ago. The growth is due to the executive director and founder's passion and endless energy to help families who are not able to afford basic furniture for their home and also from the help of volunteers. There are many ways to volunteer including assembling welcome baskets, delivering furniture, helping out with events, etc. Volunteering for this great organization will greatly help expand the services provided to families in the area.

I have volunteered a day per week since the beginning of NLF. I have delivered to many families that have been sitting, eating, and sleeping on the floor for quite awhile. The unconditional help shown to them lifts their spirits. How can anyone do well at school and work with such conditions. It is such a fantastic help and the families are overwhelmed. This is why I continue to do it. This is so satisfying to help in a small way making such a huge difference with some families. The children really capture your heart. You want them to have a chance.

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.

There is a light in this dark world and it's called the hands of Jesus working through His servants. NLF is just that, a godly group of men and women serving God by reaching out to our community. This organization brings hope to people who've seen the difficulties of this life first hand and need the love of the Father reaching out to them with a second chance. As a family, we've donated items as well as monetary means to support NLF and consider it a top priority to give to. Holly Young and her staff have done an incredible job building this business from ground level into a much larger operation of serving so many families in this area. It truly is a ministry with a mission!

New Life Furniture is an amazing organization! I have watched this organization grow over the years from starting out in a garage to having a warehouse through which the furniture goes into and out of each day. The clients of New Life Furniture are just coming off of homelessness. They have made it to the point where they can afford apartment rent, but not the furnishings. That is where NLF steps in. They deliver furniture to these families and celebrate with them at their new home. The furniture is gently used--nothing goes to these people that the Executive Director (Holly) wouldn't put in her own home! NLF helps hundreds and hundreds of families every year with honor and dignity. Thank you New Life Furniture for your ministry--you truly are the hands and feet of Jesus to so many families!! God bless you in your work!!

I found out about NLF through Holly Young. We had become friends, so I contacted her when we were updating our home and buying new furniture. NLF makes it so easy to donate! It is a very heartwarming experience to know that someone will appreciate your used furniture right away. This ministry is worthy of your support, and I highly recommend it!

New Life Furniture works tirelessly to provide their clients with gently used furniture in order to make a house a home. The ministry provides a lot more than just physical objects to their customers. In these challenging economic times, New Life really fulfills their ministries name.
