HomeAhead Furniture Bank of Boulder County collects donated furniture and household items for distribution to individuals and families transitioning out of homelessness.

Together with our partners, we create comfortable living spaces to promote housing stability in Boulder County.

 

ABOUT

HomeAhead is a member of the Furniture Bank Network of North America. Since 2019 we have furnished over 525 homes in Boulder County, helping break the cycle of homelessness in our community. 

 

HomeAhead collects and distributes gently used essential furniture and household items to individuals and families transitioning out of homeless in Boulder County. Through a cycle of giving and helping, we provide the most vulnerable individuals in society the means to create a true home and start a new life. We strive to transform empty houses into safe and comfortable homes and put the stigma of being homeless in the past. 

Some of the agencies that refer clients to HomeAhead include: Bridge House/Ready to Work, Boulder Shelter for the Homeless, Boulder Mental Health Partners, Mother House, Precious Child, EFAA, HOPE, TGTHR (formally Attention Homes), and Boulder County Housing and Human Services.
