Our Mission

We provide beds and essential home furniture to children and families in need.

Our Vision

Our goal is to make sure that every family in Metropolitan Detroit is living in a properly furnished home; that every child is getting a healthy start in life by sleeping in a warm bed or crib; and that all useable furniture helps those who are most vulnerable live with dignity.

Our History

Historic-photoThe Furniture Bank of Southeastern Michigan was founded in 1968 by a network of Birmingham and Bloomfield area volunteers and churches.  It is the oldest furniture bank in North America, having helped more than 65,000 families since its inception, evolving over time into an organization of caring professionals committed to helping local families in need.
