Furniture Assist is now located in Springfield, NJ, and is entirely volunteer-run. Originally an outreach program at their church, founders Dawson and Sandy Yoemans were guided by a simple concept, “we accept donations from those who have items to give … and give these items to people in need.” Individuals/families in need of furniture, clothing, and/or household necessities are referred to FA by a large network of social service, disaster relief, and religious organizations, and are known as Clients.  “Clients make an appointment to visit our warehouse, select what they need, and take these items home with them,” explained Mr. Yoemans. Revenues raised by the Tag Sale and other events are used to pay FA’s ongoing expenses, such as rent, utilities, etc.

Items given by FA to Clients have been donated by members of the community. FA accepts donations of no-longer-needed but usable furniture, clothing, household necessities, toys, baby items, and home décor on Sundays from noon – 2:30 pm at its 24 Commerce Street, Springfield location (or by appointment).  Furniture Assist is able to serve approximately 25 families per week, made possible by generous donations of household goods as well as by funds raised by events such as the Tag Sale. For more information about FA, please visit our website www.furnitureassist.com or our Facebook page (“Like” us for updates!). New volunteers are always welcome!
