St. Louise House Furniture Donations

For many people, moving means getting rid of used furniture. Whether you are trying to de-clutter before putting your house on the market, downsizing for a move to a smaller place, or just using moving as a reason to make a change, you probably have a few pieces of furniture that will need a new home of their own.

I’d like to encourage you to donate your gently used furniture to a great Austin area organization, Saint Louise House.

SLH_logo_center_notagSaint Louise House provides deeply affordable and supportive housing for low income homeless women and their children with the goal of helping families develop long-term stability. Saint Louise House has grown from five apartments in 2001 to two 24-unit apartment complexes with the capacity to serve 46 families. In this housing environment, families are encouraged to be a part of a supportive community as they work or attend school.

Saint Louise House takes a unique approach to housing. Each family that moves in opens the door to a fully furnished apartment (including house wares, linens and décor). When the family is ready to move into their next home, they take everything with them. This approach provides a sense of stability for families who’ve experienced much uncertainty, and it is furniture donations which help make this approach possible.

Saint Louise House accepts the following furniture items for donation:

• Sofas, loveseats, chairs
• Dining room tables and chairs
• End and coffee tables
• Sturdy TV stands or small entertainment centers
• Night Stands
• Dressers
• Toddler beds with mattress
• Adjustable metal bed frames

So instead of throwing away the furniture you won’t be taking to your new home, donate it to a family in need.
