Community Warehouse is a non-profit agency that takes donations of basic household items and furniture and gives them to low-income people recovering from crisis such as homelessness, domestic violence and disability. The majority of our clients are families with young children and most have a woman as head of household. Over 90 local social service agencies refer people in need to Community Warehouse for assistance. Our services provide people in need with the basics necessary for a functional home, and provide them with an opportunity to create stability in their lives. Each week approximately 70 low-income households are assisted by Community Warehouse. Because we are the only agency of our kind in the Portland and SW Washington areas, over 200 households remain on our waiting list.
Sustainable Qualification Summary
Community Warehouse takes donations of used household items and furniture and passes them on to low-income families in need at no charge to them. Our service takes items such as mattresses that may otherwise be taken to the dump. Because we have a truck that picks up donations, many items will be given to us in lieu of tossing them out. We are an organization that provides a service to low-income people, but also to local people wanting to pass along useful but unwanted items to someone in need.
