CHAT's Furniture Warehouse

Our furniture warehouse provides furniture & household goods for dozens of CHAT residents every year.

1/27/2021: Furniture Warehouse Temporarily on Hold

Unfortunately we've had to temporarily halt all donations to our furniture warehouse program. The new warehouse owner needs the space so we're looking for a new warehouse.


Contact us at info@chicohousingactionteam.net if you know of a warehouse space of 1500 to 2500 sq ft. Thank you!


We operate a furniture warehouse in Chico for our residents, most of whom were homeless or lost everything they owned in one of our recent wildfire events, and we gladly accept donated items.

We can accept: sofas, tables, chairs, shelves. dressers, bed-frames, mattresses, desks, small appliances, and miscellaneous household goods. Appliances must be in working order unless they're easily repairable.

Sorry, we cannot accept pillows, bed linens,  tablecloths, or towels.

To donate furniture items:

email info@chicohousingactionteam.net with:

  • a description of your items

  • their current working condition if applicable

  • a picture of the items

  • whether you can deliver the item(s) or if you need us to pick them up.

If we can take your items, we will be in touch with how you can drop off your donations, or if our schedule allows, how we can pick them up. THANK YOU FOR YOUR DONATIONS!

After we moved our first family into the first residence, we realized that they would need more than a place to live in order to create a home, they would also need furniture and other housewares. Nothing like that existed in Chico so we rented our own warehouse and started taking in donated furniture and giving or loaning pieces to new residents as needed.

This is an essential service for folks who may be coming from homelessness, a shelter, or a domestic abuse situation. Useful basic furniture can add to a sense of stability and safety, and residents are enormously grateful for the  furniture for their new homes.
