Maritza, Family Rescue Client
“When my kids came home that day, they could not believe it. They were so surprised. My daughter started crying and said, ‘Mommy, how did you do it? … I love my bed!’”
Tracey, Renaissance Social Services Client
Tracey told us that in her previous life, “there was nothing.” Now, because of Renaissance and the Chicago Furniture Bank, she is able to enjoy the comfort of a fully furnished home. She wrote “I just love Chicago Furniture Bank for donating the furniture to me. I feel much better. Everything is beautiful. I didn’t know how I was going to get furniture... God bless you all for the donations.”
