The regional nonprofit's second location will launch in September or early October at 295 Sawdust Road, Spring, according to founder and Executive Director Oli Mohammed. The 50,000-square-foot facility will be divided into a furniture assistance center for needy families, in partnership with other local nonprofits, and a retail furniture outlet with proceeds supporting the organization's charitable activities.
Houston Furniture Bank currently operates from a facility at 8220 Mosley Road, Houston. Mohammed said the nonprofit has provided furniture to more than 30,000 Greater Houston-area families since its founding, including dozens each month, and its Houston location has also recycled more than 100,000 mattresses through a refurbishment program that began in 2012. 713-842-9771. www.houstonfurniturebank.org
