MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF HUNDREDS OF MEN AND WOMEN WHO HAVE SERVED OUR COUNTRY AND NEED OUR HELP.
Please join us!
The Veterans Furniture Center is a veteran-run, volunteer based 501 c (3) fighting to end veteran homelessness in the Greater Phoenix area. We work with the VA and HUD-VASH to help transition veterans to a furnished home. Providing the household furniture and goods helps to make there new housing a HOME.
With the help of our dedicated partners and volunteers we transform tiny apartments into livable homes by providing NEW essential household items, and NEW small-scaled furniture, given as a gift to fellow veterans in need. This provides as sense of ownership to the veteran and shows that he has support for his/her transition from the streets.
If you donate to our Support a Veteran Program, 100% of your donation will go to buy furniture and household goods for our veterans. Also, volunteers are always needed in many capacities and no heavy lifting is required.

The VFC provides a complete kit of new furniture and household goods, free of charge to veterans who have nothing, and haven’t owned anything significant in a long time. They have struggled on the street and have made an effort and sought help from the VA or one of the great social service agencies in the Phoenix area that provides temporary shelter and rehabilitation.
Thanks to the Federal Government HUD-VASH program they are able to move from homelessness to permanent housing. But, we often find the veteran sleeping on the cold hard floor and without the necessary household items to prepare a meal or even make a cup of coffee. Left in these conditions, the veteran is highly likely to return to the street.
When we deliver new furniture and new household goods, we make their apartment into a home, giving the veteran who previously has had nothing, a sense of self-worth and hope for the future.
The message is clear: someone cares, someone is offering a hand up, someone has their back. It is not a government agency or an entitlement. It is fellow veterans who believe in them and want them to successfully return to society.
