Furniture and Household Items Assistance

For low-income families, veterans and individuals in Massachusetts

Every year Household Goods fulfills the requests of hundreds of human service organizations in Massachusetts to help their clients fill empty living spaces with the items they need most to make a home. In 2015, a total of more than 55,000 donated items found a new individual or family to use and appreciate them.

If you are an agency that works with veterans, recently homeless, low-income families or others and are looking for places that help with furniture, please read more about our furniture assistance program here, or contact us here with your questions.

I wanted to take the time to thank you all at Household Goods for all you have done for my homeless clients. I have used Household Goods almost exclusively to help my clients furnish and supply their new apartments. Each time I have brought a client to you, your personnel have been exceedingly helpful and friendly.
The selection of furniture and other supplies is wonderful. Everything is in great condition and the selection helps my clients feel as though they really have a choice in what their homes will look like. This is so important to their self-esteem and in their moving forward in their lives.
Keep up the good work! I look forward to continuing to refer clients to you.

Thank you for helping Jimmy. He spent 18 months in a nursing home and it was not fun. He has an apartment now but little furniture. You are making a miracle.
