Since New Life Furniture Bank of MA began operating in October 2013, we have experienced significant growth on all fronts - from the pieces of furniture collected to the number of households served - and we expect these numbers to just keep growing. Below are some facts and figures reflecting our collective impact.

In October 2018, New Life celebrated its five-year anniversary. It was a busy and rewarding year in achieving New Life’s mission to collect gently used furniture and provide it at no cost to those in need. The 2018 Annual Report shines a light on the amazing impact we have made together in the lives of so many through several exciting initiatives.
STORIES OF HOPE
I came to New Life with my mother. We have been homeless for 20 years. We’ve lived with different family members ever since my father walked out when I was 12. I felt like I could never have a normal life. Now I feel like my life is turning around, even though my mother needs me more than ever, since her health is failing and I have to care for her. I feel so lucky that we now have an apartment and a new start. Thank you!
It’s a beautiful day that I came to New Life, even if it is pouring rain outside. I felt bad the way my apartment was since I moved in a month ago. Having not much funds can be difficult. If there is nothing else in life that I’ve learned, it’s “Don’t give up!” With the help of good people, my efforts are not in vain.
