|Nearly 6,000 people experience homelessness in the Greater Cincinnati area each year…..that number is more than double across the region New Life Furniture Bank serves.
“I was in college, and homeless,” shared Keeziah, who recently overcame a difficult situation. Thanks to help from our partner agency, Lighthouse Youth Services, Keeziah was able to get matched with housing before this school year started and was nominated for our Design With A Heart program. Interior designer, Ricci Jackson, and volunteers, worked together to furnish Keeziah’s new space for a brighter, happier future. “I see the community come together….this is so nice, I want to help people too,” said Keeziah.
You can hear more of Keeziah’s moving story above and see the beautiful, stylish new place she now can call HOME. Now she can focus on her education, employment, and break this cycle of homelessness.
New Life Furniture Bank is Southwest Ohio’s only furniture bank collecting gently used furniture and household items to provide to those in need throughout Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. We deliver and set-up an entire household of furnishings to families overcoming homelessness, domestic abuse, extreme poverty, and other devastating circumstances such as home fires, floods, and other disasters.
