Why Furniture?

A person or family without the financial means to furnish their home is considered to live in furniture poverty. These people live in an empty and closed-off environment that doesn’t encourage them or build community.

Your used furniture donation can change the life of someone in need. Furniture is essential in creating a warm, welcoming, comfortable home environment which in turn is essential to unlocking one’s potential to live a productive and fulfilling life.

Once you complete the form, we'll be in touch regarding pickup availability. **We are currently able to pick up large item donations within 10 miles of downtown Pittsburgh.**



Once we pick up your item, we take it to our warehouse where it will be cleaned to ensure it is in suitable condition prior to being donated to a person in need.



Your furniture donation makes a huge difference in the lives of families who are simply sheltered – to building a comfortable life that is filled with HOPE.

Off the Floor supports individuals and families experiencing furniture poverty, including women and children leaving shelters, people transitioning from homelessness, and refugees to Pittsburgh. Individuals who are in a vulnerable position, including those on low income or new immigrants to Pittsburgh, may be eligible to receive furniture.

Here’s what you should know first.
  • You cannot make an appointment directly with Off the Floor. You must be referred by one of our agency partners.
  • If you are a person in need of furniture, please visit St. Vincent de Paul's website and input your zip code to find the site nearest to you. Call and let them know you are in need of furniture and they can help get the process started.

Our Agencies


We are looking for either individuals or a team of volunteers willing to assist with furniture deliveries and pickups. We need willing volunteers, committed to service, who would be comfortable driving our truck, picking up donated furniture, and unloading in our warehouse in the Northside, or delivering the furniture to families in need. Such teams allow us to increase the amount of used furniture we pick up and ultimately help us serve more families each year. Sound interesting?
