About Us

Furniture Assist, Inc. was formed officially as a New Jersey Non-Profit Corporation on January 4, 2006. However, we began on April 15, 2004 as the outreach of St. Luke and All Saints Episcopal Church in Union, New Jersey. We are a registered 501(c)(3) corporation able to give tax receipts for donations if requested.

We have grown rapidly and are now associated with the outreach efforts of many religious and social organizations in the North Jersey area. Some of the outreach efforts operate under our name and some are independent and utilize their own name.

Our concept is simple. We accept donations from those who have items to give. The items are picked up (or delivered) to our warehouse facility. People in need of items are referred by a social organization who will verify that they qualify for assistance. The customer will come to our facility at their appointed time, pick out the items that they need and take the items with them.

Currently we have the ability to pick up 3-4 households of furniture each week and can receive an unlimited amount of items delivered to our storage facility. We receive many times more offers of donations. Our ability is limited only by financial and volunteer concerns. Since the need exists, we must attract more resources.

Our resources allow us to assist 30 families each week. Since we currently receive 60-90 requests each week, we could expand our outreach with additional resources.

Most of the donations remain in our warehouse for only a few days. In addition to the clients, we also provide donated items to other non-profits. If the agency has the equipment that they need, they will be able to better assist their clients.

We have received donations from thousands of families and have helped thousands of clients.
