Our Story

Downsize with a Heart is a social enterprise operated by the Furniture Bank of Central Ohio (FBCO). All proceeds from our services are invested into the core mission of the FBCO to help families in need. A social enterprise is a business that creates sustainable revenue to support the mission and goals of its parent non-profit organization.

Established in 1998, the FBCO has been a part of the community for almost 20 years. They provide furniture and household goods to local families struggling with poverty and other severe life challenges. The FBCO serves about 4,000 families a year through the generosity of 8,000 furniture donors and 2,000 volunteers. On average, each family in need will receive 16 pieces of furniture and home goods, turning their empty house into a home.

Become a part of our 10,000 acts of kindness by donating your unwanted household items as part of your downsizing. The large formal dining table you no longer need can be given to a family that eats on the floor. The spare bedroom set that no longer fits could furnish a child’s bedroom. Choosing Downsize with a Heart helps you – and a family in need.
