CHAT's Furniture Warehouse

Our furniture warehouse provides needed furniture & housewares for CHAT RESIDENTS

We operate a furniture warehouse in Chico to furnish our residences with items donated by the community. Most folks who move into a CHAT residence have no furnishings or housewares when they move in.

We would love to accept  your donated furniture or housewares if they're on our current needs list.

If you have items to donate, email us at furniture@chicohousingactionteam.net with a description and, if posssible, pictures of the items you'd like to donate.

THANK YOU for your donations of gently used furniture and housewares! It makes a world of difference when someone can walk into a new home that's already furnished and comfortable to live in.

About the furniture warehouse program

NewWarehouseSpace_Full_2021May.jpg

After we moved our first individuals into the first residence in 2015, 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 to be successful and live independently. Nothing like a furniture warehouse for non-profits 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.

We now have one of the largest furniture warehouses in Butte County, and we supply furniture to other housing agencies throughout the county. This program is completely volunteer run, and it is an essential service for folks who may be coming from homelessness, a shelter, or a domestic abuse situation. Useful basic furniture and essential housewares add to a sense of stability and safety for a household just getting back on their feet. It's an amazing thing to see how residents are enormously grateful for the furniture and housewares for their new homes.
