Welcome to New Life Furniture Bank of MA. We take pride in being a volunteer-driven organization. Since Doug Marshall and Ron Yates started New Life in 2013, our dedicated volunteers have worked tirelessly to serve thousands of individuals and families in need of a new beginning.

When someone is able to transition into permanent housing, they often have only their clothing. We partner with various organizations to provide a client with furniture and/or housewares – a bed to sleep on, a table to eat at, dishes to eat from…things that many of us take for granted, but everyone deserves to have.

However, providing furniture at no cost requires the generous help of volunteers. Whether it is cleaning gently used furniture, writing grants, or working one-on-one with our clients, volunteers are involved in all aspects of our operation. Simply put, we could not do what we do without volunteers like you.
We recognize people live busy lives. Maybe you work full time, regularly take care of your grandchildren, or play for an athletic team. We are grateful you have chosen to dedicate time to volunteering with us. Your efforts and time here have long lasting affects on the clients we serve.

Thank you for your commitment to helping individuals and families transitioning out of homelessness and Welcome to our family of volunteers.

See you soon,

New Life Furniture Bank of MA Team
