Helping With Furniture
1900 Marquis Avenue, Unit 6, Ottawa, Ontario

We are a volunteer-run charitable organization that provides gently-used furniture and household goods to families and individuals in need. In particular, we focus on newcomers to Canada who are living in the Ottawa area.

Since 2005 we have helped more than 1000 families and currently have more on a waiting list. Most of our families come to us through referrals from social agencies. They have often fled from conflict and life-threatening situations and arrive in Canada with little more than hope to sustain them. Those who can find housing often spend months with little or no furniture.

More Than A Roof Mennonite Housing Society
1515 Charles Street, Suite 100, Vancouver, British Columbia

Our focus on being "More Than A Roof" captures in a simple phrase the very essence of our society's Vision and Mission. Sometimes it means helping a young single mom cope with the intense pressures of poverty and parenthood. Sometimes it means bringing dignity, care and friendship to someone who lives with the terrors of a mental illness. It could be an unhesitating welcome to a refugee family fleeing brutal oppression and hardship of a third world country, or accepting those who are homeless and hungry.
