Moving Families Forward provides free furniture and household items to
Los Angeles families in need who are moving from homelessness
and temporary living situations into permanent housing.
Our mission is to help create a comfortable and inviting home environment for families who are striving to move forward in their lives.
We believe that practical comforts such as beds, tables, chairs, towels and other basic items are not only necessary but essential to instilling a sense of pride and hope in families. We turn houses into homes; supporting families in their goal to sustain independence.
We collect and warehouse gently used and new home furnishings from private donors and local companies, and then work in partnership with Los Angeles County shelters to identify families who are ready to move into permanent housing but have little or no personal belongings and are in need of assistance. On move-in day, Moving Families Forward delivers an individualized package of furniture and household items to meet the specific needs of the family.
