  • Mission:
  • Benton Furniture Share (BFS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that has been in operation since 1998. Our mission is to redistribute quality used furniture at no cost to children, families and individuals in need, thus diverting items from the landfill. Our services provide improved family interactions, increased comfort and safety in homes, improving overall wellness, independence, physical and mental health.

  • History:
  • In FY 07/08 BFS distributed 3611 quality used furniture items to 562 households comprised of 1507underserved individuals. The value of the distributed items has been calculated at over $270,000. In addition to providing this valuable service to our community, BFS also achieves our two fold mission to protect the environment by reducing the amount of furniture in our landfills, and in 2007-08 BFS was able to divert 34.73 tons. Initially the program served only Benton County residents but has since expanded to provide minimal services to Linn, Lincoln and other surrounding rural Counties. Our board has established goals which include expanding current services within Linn and Lincoln County during FY 08/09. Each year since its inception BFS has experienced an increase in requests to serve the core populations which are primarily identified as "vulnerable", which include physically or developmentally disabled, frail, elderly, those escaping domestic violence, the mentally handicapped and those who have previously been (or at high risk for) homelessness. Of the families served in 2007, 42% were children. We also serve those who are frequently referred to as "the working poor". These are families in which one or more adults in the home are employed, but the purchase of basic household items such as beds on frames and dining tables are unaffordable. BFS' services increased by 253% in the rural communities we serve from 2006-07 to present, and an overall increase of 67% in total client services.
