Our Mission

Our mission is to connect essential furnishings to neighbors in need through unique community partnerships, creating stronger home foundations and brighter futures for all.

What We Do

We’re your friendly local furniture bank, serving the Portland area for over 15 years. How does a furniture bank work? In a nutshell, we collect donated home goods, and work with social service agencies to get those goods in the hands of those who need it most.

The stuff you no longer need becomes the solution for a family in need. Pretty simple, huh? At Community Warehouse, it’s the simple stuff – the extra dishes, towels, beds, and more – that changes lives.

Ways to Help

Check out all the ways you can join us in fulfilling our mission – using furniture to help families in need get back on their feet. Or off their feet and onto their new sofa, in a family room filled with laughter and love.

Donors & Partners

Shout-out to all of our wonderful community partners and donors. Without you, Community Warehouse would just be a warehouse. And a warehouse flying solo can’t get much done.

Chair Affair

We love gathering stuff. We also love gathering community. Check out our upcoming events to have fun (always!), learn about our mission, and connect with our ever-growing community of supporters.

Together We Have Enough: Our Vision for the Future

Strategic Plan, 2018-2022


We’re here to tell a hopeful story. About a problem we can solve.

No home in our community should be empty. When it comes to furnishings, there are enough. And when it comes to people who care about their neighbors, there are more than enough.  

Many deserving people in our community are striving to get back on their feet and create solid home foundations for themselves and their children. And yet, they can barely make ends meet. For these families, household furnishings can make a world of difference, and local furniture banks are the solution.
