Who We Are and What We Do
The Mississauga Furniture Bank (MFB) recycles new and gently used household furnishings from individuals and corporate donors to our client base which includes women and children, refugees, the homeless, families living below the poverty line and victims of domestic violence. We also help the elderly, disabled and those who have lost all to fire, a natural disaster or personal tragedy.
These clients have been referred to us by registered community shelters, faith-based organizations and social agencies.
By acting as a hub between donors and social agencies the MFB is able to connect families in need with furnishings for their homes, not only helping those in need but having a positive ecological impact as we divert furniture and home furnishings destined for local landfills.
We are a donation based agency so we depend heavily on our area neighbours to help with the needs of our clients.
Our mission and vision
The mission of the MFB is to provide basic household furnishings and home essentials to individuals and families who are in need. We work to achieve this by collaborating with Mississauga social service agencies whose clients desperately need furniture.
It is our long-term vision to see that EVERY child in Mississauga has a bed to sleep in and every family in Mississauga living with dignity in a properly-furnished home.

Women and children who have fled from abusive relationships
Senior citizens who have a difficult time making ends meet
